Police in Pasadena, Calif., discovered a body in a self-storage unit Friday after being called to investigate a hit-and-run.
A man driving a sedan entered A-1 Mini Storage on Irwindale Avenue just after 4 p.m. using a security code. A code was also needed to exit the facility. The man apparently didn’t have one so he asked an employee to let him out. When the employee refused, the man crashed through the gate.
Witnesses at the scene gave police the vehicle’s license plate. The same car also reportedly crashed in the city of Baldwin Park a short time later, and the driver was detained, police said.
Police traced the entry code used at the gate to a self-storage unit and discovered the body. The age of the victim, cause and time of death was not released. Police haven’t released the name of the man in custody.
