Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Olympic Area officers arrested a suspected car thief with stolen property in his possession.

On July 26, 2010 at about 9 a.m. Olympic patrol officers were in the area of 1st Street and Normandie Avenue, an area plagued with car thefts, when they saw an individual peering into parked cars.  The officers stopped to investigate the suspicious activity when they discovered the individual had stolen property in his possession.  The officers recovered jewelry, several digital cameras, cell phones, DVDs, CDs, MP3 players, video games and a stolen item that traced back to a May 2009 theft of a vehicle.  

The suspect, identified as 46-year-old Carlos Flores of Los Angeles, was arrested for receiving stolen property and was booked into the LAPD’s jail facility in lieu of $20,000 bail.

Olympic Division Property Section detectives want to return the recovered property to rightful owners and ask that any victims of reported burglary or theft in the Mid-City Koreatown area to please come forward.  

Detectives urge citizens to make sure their vehicle doors are always locked and remove all valuables, not leaving anything in plain view.  

**Photos of the recovered property are available at www.lapdonline.org

Anyone with information about this crime or wishes to claim any items are asked to call Detectives Ron Lee or Ana Melara at 213-382-9440.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
