Suspects Sought in Hollywood Hills Burglary NR09424ah

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police are asking for the public’s help in identifying three burglars who broke into a Hollywood Hills home on August 23, 2009.

A surveillance camera at a home in the 2200 block of El Contento Drive captured three suspects, whose faces were covered with scarves, walking through a gate and entering a courtyard at around 1:10 a.m.  Detectives believe that the trio gained entry inside the home through an unlocked door, then ransacked it and took the victim’s property.  The suspects were last seen on foot from El Contento Drive.

The first suspect is described as a white male, 18 to 25 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches tall with a thin build and light-brown hair.  He was last seen wearing a light-color baseball hat, a brown short- sleeve shirt and blue jeans.

The second suspect is described as white female, 18 to 25 years of age, between 5 feet 1 inches and 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighing 120 pounds.  Her hair was pulled back in a pony tail and she was last seen wearing a scarf, a white shirt and black pants.

The third suspect is described as a white female, 18 to 25 years of age, between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighing 120 pounds with shoulder-length blond hair.  She was last seen wearing a blue hooded jacket and black pants.
