Northeast Robbery Detectives
Los Angeles: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Northeast Division is investigating two Home Invasion Robberies and one Residential Burglary that occurred between March 28, 2001 and April 30, 2001. The crimes are unusual in that the suspects identify themselves as police officers in order to gain access to the victim’s residence. Once inside, the suspects handcuff the victims, ransack the residences, take property and leave. The suspects are described as follows:
Suspect #1 – male, Hispanic, 6’0", medium build, early to mid 40’s with thinning hair on top and receding hair in front.
Suspect #2 – male, Hispanic, 5’9", thin build, short black hair, wearing a baseball cap with a picture of feet on the front.
