Commercial Burglars Caught on Tape Detectives need the public’s help to ID suspect

Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Wilshire Burglary Detectives are investigating a series of commercial burglaries along Pico Boulevard that occurred during the month of October 2012.

During the month of October, 2012, Wilshire Area experienced five commercial burglaries during the early morning hours. The burglaries occurred between the 4200 to 5500 block of Pico Boulevard. As many as five suspects had entered each business. The suspects took property and money during the burglaries.

Wilshire Burglary Detectives have recovered video surveillance of the burglaries and in one instance captured still photos of one of the suspects, described as a male Black, 20-25 years of age. The photo depicts a unique tattoo along the right side of the suspect’s neck, which appears to be the letter “W” in a cursive script, similar to the logo of the Washington Nationals Baseball Club. Additionally, Wilshire Detectives have determined that the suspects were driving a dark colored 1995-2000 Chevrolet Astro Van.

Wilshire Burglary Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect with the unique tattoo along the side of his neck.

Anyone with information regarding this crime or suspects is urged to contact LAPD Wilshire Burglary Detective Paul Quan at 213-922-8251. 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 LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
