Reward Offered for Hillside Burglary Suspects

Los Angeles: Yesterday LAPD detectives and city officials offered a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two men who have burglarized homes in affluent hillside communities throughout Los Angeles.

The announcement came as part of an aggressive yearlong investigation into the series of burglaries that have occurred primarily in Bel Air and Brentwood, but also Hollywood and the West San Fernando Valley. The suspects enter residences and ransack rooms looking for cash and jewelry. To date, many victims have sustained substantial property losses.

Based on video surveillance tapes provided by residents, the suspects appear to be two male Blacks, 25-30 years, with stocky builds. They are over 6 feet tall and weigh 200-240 pounds. The suspects wear gloves and ski masks.

In one of the recorded surveillance tapes, the suspects are seen approaching a home before they pull down their face masks. Based on that video, the police released photographs of both suspects and are asking for the public's assistance in identifying them.

In support of the investigation, Council Member Jack Weiss asked the City of Los Angeles to authorize a $50,000 reward leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

The LAPD continues to make every effort to investigate the crimes and apprehend the men responsible. Since community awareness is a significant part of prevention, residents are reminded to be extremely vigilant in making sure their homes are secure. The LAPD recommends citizens take the following steps:

•Ensure all doors and windows are securely locked, including side and rear garage doors.
•Verify alarm systems are maintained and in good working order.
•Consider motion sensor detectors as part of any home alarm system.
•Activate alarms when leaving a residence, even for short trips away.
•Consider installation of surveillance cameras as part of the security system.
•Maintain updated records and photographs of small, non-serialized valuables.

Anyone with information is asked to call West Los Angeles Burglary Detectives at 310-444-1566, during normal business hours. After hours and on weekends, phone the 24-hour Detective Information Hotline at 877-LAW-FULL (877-529-3855).
