November 18, 2010

Los Angeles:  The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) Newton Area Burglary Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying three female suspects whose images were caught on surveillance video committing a burglary at a Flower District business in the downtown area.

On October 30, 2010, at about 12:20 p.m., three female suspects entered a retail flower store located in the 700 block of South San Pedro Street.  One of the female suspects reached behind a counter and took the victim’s handbag while the other female suspects distracted the store’s employee.  All suspects exited the store and left in an early 2000 model silver or gray Nissan four-door.  Detectives believe the suspects may be responsible for several other commercial burglaries in the L.A. area.

The suspects are described as females approximately 30 to 40 years old. They stand about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weigh approximately 180-220 pounds.  Suspect-1 was wearing a light colored top with black pants.  Suspect-2 was wearing a black, brown, and white printed top with beige pants.  Suspect-3 was wearing a black top with pink jacket and pink pants.
