Venice: Detectives from Department’s Pacific Area are asking for the public’s help in obtaining any information that would lead to the identification of the suspects involved in a Commercial Burglary in the Venice Area.
On June 29, 2023, around 11:40 p.m., the suspects parked a newer white, 4D, pickup truck with no license plates on Indiana Avenue west of Lincoln Boulevard. An unknown suspect climbed on top of a white storage box positioned at the rear of a local store located in the 700 block of Lincoln Boulevard.
