Burglary Suspect Caught in the Act NR11081kr

Los Angeles: A burglary suspect, who is believed responsible for several residential burglaries, was taken into custody early Friday morning shortly after committing a burglary.

On February 18, 2011, at around 6:45 a.m., investigators from Robbery Homicide Division, Special Investigation Section (SIS) were in the area of Halsted Street and Encino Avenue, investigating a series of burglaries in the West Valley Area.  As they were conducting their investigation a burglary occurred and investigators began following the suspect, 23 year old Jonathan Martin.

Officers attempted to make a traffic stop on Martin, but he failed to comply and led officers on a short pursuit.  Once stopped, Martin jumped from his vehicle and ran from the officers.  After establishing a perimeter a search for Martin was conducted.  He was found hiding by LAPD Metropolitan K-9 Officer Chris Amador and his K-9 partner, “Ralph”.

During the arrest Martin was bitten by the dog. He was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries and listed in stable condition.

Martin was booked for Burglary and is being held on $50,000 bail.

Officer Amador is a 21-year 3-month veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department.
 
Force Investigation Division is conducting the investigation into the use of force resulting in Martin’s injuries.
