Wilshire Office Building Ransacked and Burglarized NR13535rf

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department detectives are seeking the public’s help in identifying suspects captured on surveillance video committing a burglary at an office building in the Hancock Park area.

On Nov. 27, 2013, at approximately 7:55 a.m., surveillance video showed suspects leaving an office building in the 4700 block of Wilshire Boulevard with property belonging to tenants in the building.
Over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, the suspects ransacked the location and used a furniture dolly to steal various items, including computers, sports memorabilia and personal property.  All of the stolen items were loaded into a dark-colored Scion vehicle shown leaving the location on the surveillance video, and detectives believe they may still be driving that vehicle.
 
The suspects are described as two white males.  One suspect, who wore a dark baseball cap, blue jacket, blue jeans and white shoes was 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighed about 180 pounds. He appeared to be 30 to 35 years old.  The other suspect, who wore a black jacket, dark jeans and black shoes with white soles, was 5 feet 10 to 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighed about 160 pounds. He appeared to be 25 to 30 years old.  

Anyone with information about these crimes, suspects, or their vehicle is asked to call Operations West Bureau Detective Humberto Tovar at 213-473-0410.  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 www.LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
