Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) West Los Angeles Burglary detectives are asking for the public’s help in providing any information that would lead to the arrest of three burglars caught on video surveillance in the Bel Aire area.

On Tuesday June 1, 2010 at around 6 p.m., LAPD West Los Angeles patrol officers received a radio call of a burglary that occurred at a residence in the 900 block of North Beverly Glen Avenue. Once the officers arrived, they immediately checked the residence and called the burglary detectives.

The detectives’ investigation revealed that the suspects entered the premises of the property through the victim's front gate and forced their way into the rear of the residence.  Large amounts of cash and an expensive piece of jewelry were stolen during the commission of this crime.
