CLAREMONT – Blood from a cut on the hand during a residential burglary is what led deputies to the identity of the suspect on Monday morning. At around 10:00 a.m. the Claremont Police Department responded to a home in the area of Baseline Road and Mountain Avenue. When they arrived they learned that a burglary had occurred and there was a blood trail leading away from the home. The blood trail went on for around two miles then stopped abruptly in the area of Garey Avenue and Foothill Boulevard in the City of Pomona.
“Dare”, the Rancho Cucamonga Police Bloodhound responded at around 12:15 p.m. to assist in the search for the injured suspect. With the use of a scent article, Dare began to trail the suspect scent to the 200 block of Foothill Boulevard in the City of Pomona. Dare kept going, eventually leading officers to a bloody bicycle. Police made contact with the occupants of the home, questioning them about the bike and bloody area.
The residents explained that around 11:00 a.m. on Christmas day the suspect came to their home saying he was stabbed and was in need of medical attention. Los Angeles County Fire Department medics responded to the scene and he was treated for his injuries and was transported to the hospital. The suspect identified as Lloyd McVittie, 36, left the hospital before he was treated and his whereabouts are currently unknown.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Lloyd McVittie should contact Claremont Police Department, Officer Becker at (909)399-5411.
