Tons of fitness equipment, a Champion Newspapers news stand and numerous other items were found inside four storage units this week in Montclair by Chino Hills Police, resulting in the arrest of a burglary suspect from Chino.
Mark Ellis, who is on felony probation, was booked into the West Valley Detention Center in Rancho Cucamonga on suspicion of burglary, Capt. Darren Goodman said.
“The suspect had ambitions of opening his own gym. But he was also a typical criminal of opportunity, stealing anything he could make off with,” the captain said.
A couple of handguns were also recovered from the storage units.
Chino Hills Detective Jeremy Jackson led the investigation into the discovery of the suspected stolen items inside four storage units in Montclair, Capt. Goodman said.
Victims also included the cities of Chino and Chino Hills, Ayala High School, private citizens in Chino-Chino Hills-Newport Beach, Pilates Circle, 9 Round, Self Made Training Facility, Millennia, Yic Taekwondo and Next Level Gym, Capt. Goodman said.
