Rooftop Burglars Target Korea Town Medical Marijuana Dispensary NR12170kr

Los Angeles:  Two suspects broke into a medical marijuana dispensary by gaining access through the rooftop and left with baggies and jars of marijuana.

On July 20, 2012, around 8:15 a.m., Olympic Area officers responded to a burglary investigation in the 3500 block of West 3rd Street.  When officers arrived they discovered the business had been broken into and the suspects had entered through the roof.  

Video surveillance shows the suspects entering through a second floor bathroom that they accessed by removing a skylight from the roof of the building.  Once inside the suspects can be seen going room to room taking items from inside the dispensary.  They left through the same opening in the ceiling.

The suspects are described as:
1:   Male, Hispanic, Black Hair, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, 180 to 200 pounds, 25 years to
      30 years of age, wearing eyeglasses, with a thin mustache
2:   Male, Hispanic, shaved head, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, 150 to180 pounds, 25 years to
      30 years of age

Detectives want the business community to be aware of this type of break in so they can take steps to prevent it.     

Anyone with information about this crime or these suspects is asked to contact Olympic Area Burglary Detectives at (213) 382-9440.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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.
