Updated: 22 minutes ago
KCBS reports that a burglary suspect was arrested last Thursday and two of his alleged
accomplices are on the loose after they attempted to rob a home in the 2000 block of
West Silver Lake Drive near the Silver Lake Reservoir. Residents noticed three masked
men attempting to break into the home on their surveillance system, LAPD Officer Melissa
Podany told City News Service. One suspect was taken into custody shortly after officers
arrived at the scene, according to Fox 11. Two of the suspects avoided capture and police
remained in the area searching for them. Police arrived quickly and began searching for
the suspects, who never made it inside the home.
According to Silver Lake Senior Lead Officer Jose Ramirez, LAPD's quick response to the
911 call allowed officers to witness one suspect prying open a window. All suspects were
wearing body suits, masks, and gloves, and carrying tools. The suspect in custody is the
registered owner of the BMW SUV left at the scene. Two other suspects are still at large,
but left DNA samples which are being tested. The homeowner was not harmed.
