Los Angeles Cargo Theft Suspect Identified NR11319mf

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department’s Commercial Crimes Detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating a suspect, who has been responsible for a series of cargo thefts in the Los Angeles Area.

Beginning March, 2011through July, 2011, the suspect identified as Ashot Shaumyan, along with several other suspects have been responsible for a series of cargo thefts.  The suspects are providing false paperwork to freight brokers in order to commit the crimes.  The suspects, using their own truck/trailers will arrive at the shipping/receiving location and provide a false driver’s license to the warehouse personnel.  To date, losses total over $3 million dollars.

On a recent theft of seafood in the Central area, detectives identified Shaumyan who is described as a male, 5-8, 150 pounds with a date of birth of 7-28-59.  The suspect is believed to be of Armenian descent.   

Detectives have developed a number of leads, but need the public’s assistance in locating the suspect.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Shaumyan is asked to call Commercial Crimes  Detective Marc Zavala or Officer Ricky Hernandez at 213-847-37856.  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.
