Attempted Break-in on West Silver Lake Drive Alarms Residents

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.
