Hot Prowl Burglaries in Lincoln Heights

Los Angeles: On April 26, 2008, between the hours of 2 a.m. and 4:30 a.m., a series of burglaries occurred in the Lincoln Heights area.

In each of these incidents, known as “hot prowl” burglaries, because the break-ins occurred while victims were home, the suspect entered the property by removing window screens. Fortunately, no items were stolen because the victims awoke, which startled the suspect and caused him to run away.

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic with short, black “buzz-cut” hair. He is 19 to 25 years old and weighs 100 to 150 pounds. He is short to medium in height and was seen wearing a gray sweatshirt with dark pants. Residents are reminded to be very cautious when leaving windows open and accessible to outside entry, even in hot weather.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact Hollenbeck Area detectives at 323-526-3000. During off-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
