Police in Los Angeles County were investigating a stolen package when they encountered the suspected thieves, who had gotten into a crash. 

According to a news release from the Arcadia Police Department, officers responded to the 200 block of East Sycamore Avenue just before 4:35 a.m. Wednesday on a report of someone’s package being stolen. 

The package, which was equipped with a GPS tracking device, was eventually tracked down to the 300 block of West Maple Avenue in Monrovia. Upon arriving, police discovered a single-vehicle collision.

The vehicle’s two occupants were transported to local hospitals for their injuries. The driver of the vehicle was pronounced dead upon arrival, while the passenger sustained moderate injuries. 

Additional mail that appeared to be stolen was inside the vehicle, as was the stolen GPS-tracked package, police said. 

No identifying information on the suspects was released, and the contents of the stolen package are unknown. 

Anyone with information that could aid the ongoing investigation is asked to contact the Arcadia Police Department by calling 626-574-5151 and referencing case number 24-2267.
