Burglary Suspect Caught On Video NR14164wr

Van Nuys: Los Angeles Police Department West Valley Detectives are seeking the public’s help in apprehending two suspects who they believe are responsible for a residential burglary that occurred in Van Nuys.

On April 1, 2014, around 10:00 a.m. a residential burglary occurred in the 17400 block of Covello Street. Neighbors reported seeing an African American female loitering in the area. The suspect approached a house, walked up to the front door, knocked, rang the doorbell and looked inside. The suspect then walked up to the side of the house and looked towards the rear yard. She then left the house and made a phone call on her cell phone. A neighbor’s surveillance camera recorded the female as she slowly walked away from the house. She crossed the street, walked in front of the house and paused several times.

At the same time, another neighbor saw an African American male standing in the alley behind the same house the female suspect had approached. The male is between 30 to 34 years old, stands 5’8’ tall, he is medium build and was wearing a black knit cap and a green sweatshirt.


The female suspect is African American stands about 5’ 5” tall, and weighs approximately 200 pounds. She has long hair (possible wig). She was wearing a knit cap, white tank top and tan pants.

The investigation revealed the suspect(s) forced their way into the residence through a kitchen window, ransacked the house, then fled the location taking the victim’s property.

Detectives believe these suspects may be responsible for other residential burglaries in the area and are seeking the public’s help in identifying them.
