Hollywood Hills Burglary Investigation NR12404rf

Los Angeles:   LAPD Hollywood Area detectives are investigating a residential burglary that occurred earlier this month on August 18 in the Hollywood Hills.

As part of the investigation, detectives interviewed two victims along with witnesses to the incident, which happened in the 9300 block of Nightingale Drive.  During the course of the investigation and interviews, detectives uncovered information indicating that three others may have been present during the burglary.  Detectives requested to interview two of the individuals through their attorney but were declined.

The investigation has continued, and today, detectives presented their case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.  After reviewing the case, the district attorney’s office declined to file charges on the three individuals, citing a belief of insufficient evidence to prosecute beyond a reasonable doubt.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call the Hollywood Area Detective Division at 213-972-2931. 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, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts
