Residential Burglaries in Hollywood Hills NR10044gb

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is asking for the public's help for information leading to the identification and arrest of burglary suspects targeting homes in the Hollywood Hills area.  

On October 18, 2009 at around 3:15 p.m., two suspects broke into a home in the 2000 block of Wattles Drive.  The suspects used a pry tool to open a side door to the residence.  Once inside, the suspects removed several plasma televisions from the location.

Earlier, cameras caught the suspects casing the residence and ultimately breaking into it.  

Suspect #1 is a female Hispanic about 20 to 30 years old, with long brown hair, wearing a black tank top, black shorts and black sandals.   She later changes into a white shirt.  She stands about 5 feet 5 inches and weighs about 125 to 140 pounds.  

Suspect #2 is a White or light-skinned male Hispanic about 30 to 35 years old, with unknown color hair, wearing a blue-button down shirt, blue-jean shorts, white tennis shoes and a white baseball hat.  He is about 5 feet 8 inches to about 6 feet tall and weighs between 300 to 350 pounds.  He also has a goatee.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Hollywood Burglary Detectives at 213-972-2930.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877 LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.
