Home Invasion Robbery Leads to a Hollywood Arrest NR09586cj

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Hollywood Area officers have arrested four suspects in a home invasion robbery.     

On December 16, 2009, at around 1:40 a.m., LAPD Hollywood Area patrol officers responded to a 911 call of a “robbery in progress” in the 8200 Block of Mannix Drive in the Hollywood Hills.  Witnesses reported a white Dodge Charger leaving the scene shortly after hearing several gunshots.

As officers arrived in the area, they saw a car matching the description given by witnesses leaving the scene.  Officers immediately pursued the suspects into the Wilshire Area where they crashed near Pico Boulevard and Hauser Avenue.   A perimeter was established after the suspects got out of the car and ran away.  LAPD’s Wilshire Area patrol, Metropolitan Division and K-9 units were called in to search for the suspects, and all four were taken into custody without incident.  Evidence from the robbery was recovered at the scene, and a search for the suspects’ weapons is still ongoing.  

Preliminary information from the investigation suggests that three suspects forced their way into a residential home on Mannix Drive, while a fourth suspect waited inside the getaway car.  At gunpoint, the suspects demanded the victim open up the family safe.  Once the victim opened the safe, the suspects grabbed large amounts of cash, shot the victim and the family dog, and left the scene.  There were two more occupants in the home which included a newborn baby, but fortunately, they were not injured.

The victim was transported to a local hospital where he is listed in stable condition.  The dog was transported to an emergency veterinary clinic and is undergoing surgery.

LAPD Hollywood Area detectives would like to thank all the witnesses who called 911 with critical information on the suspects’ vehicle description, which led to the arrest of all suspects involved.  

Anyone with information regarding the crime or recovering any weapons at either location is encouraged to contact LAPD Hollywood Area Robbery Detectives Dave Vinton or Warrant Eberhardtl at 213-972-2967.  After-hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 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.
