Hollywood Hills Burglars Caught on Camera NR09234ah

Los Angeles:  On May 12, 2009, a pair of burglars attempted to break into a home in the Hollywood Hills during broad daylight and their images were caught on surveillance video.  The Los Angeles Police Department is asking for the public's help in locating those suspects as well as the vehicle.

Just before 3:00 p.m., surveillance photos captured a 4-door gray Dodge Magnum station wagon with paper plates and custom wheels parked in front of the home with two men inside.  While the driver stayed inside, the passenger suspect stepped out of the vehicle, walked through a gate and entered the backyard of the residence located in the 2200 block of El Contento Drive.  Investigators believed that the suspect tried to gain entry by using an unknown type tool to pry open a back window and door.  After the unsuccessful attempt, the suspects drove off.

The photos showed one suspect covered his face with a bandana and was last seen wearing a two-tone baseball cap with an emblem, a tan or gray long sleeve shirt, blue jeans and white sneakers.  Police were unable to provide a description of the suspect who stayed inside the getaway car.

Anyone with information about this attempt burglary is asked to call Hollywood Burglary Detectives at (213) 972-2930.  During off-hours, calls may be directed to 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips. When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
