Burglary Suspects Captured in West Los Angeles NR15234dm

July 14, 2015

Los Angeles: Detectives from the
Los Angeles Police Department’s West L.A. Division are seeking the
public’s assistance in locating additional burglary victims.

On Thursday, July 2, 2015, around 7:30 p.m., West L.A. patrol
officers responded to a radio call of possible trespass suspects at
a residence in the 1100 block of Maybrook Drive within the Bel Air
Estates area. Officers discovered two men and two women drinking
alcohol and swimming in the pool. The residence was under
construction on the first floor. The two men were hired as
painters, but no one should have been at the location at that time
of night. Officers discovered that the second level of the
residence had been ransacked, and it appeared that property was
taken. A search of the suspect’s vehicles was completed. Stolen
property was found inside of the vehicles, and was later identified
as belonging to the homeowner.

Anyone in the West L.A. area who was the victim of a burglary while
their residence was under construction, hired any of the suspects
shown below as workers or recognize seeing any of these suspects
near a construction site are asked to contact West L.A. burglary
