Neighbor Helps Catch Burglars on Wavecrest


From the LAPD Pacific Division:

LAPD Pacific Division Officers arrest four burglary suspects in Venice Beach thanks to the help from a Good Neighbor!


On March 31 at approximately 2:00 pm, Pacific officers responded to a radio call in the 100 block of Wavecrest Ave of a burglary in progress. Officers detained 4 African American teenagers who were seen prying screens off of windows and entering a residence. The witness positively identified the young men the police had detained as the same he’d seen removing screens and climbing through a window. Officers interviewed the subjects and, utimately, each confessed to travelling to Venice Beach with the intent to burglarize homes. Stolen property was returned to the owner. Thanks to the watchful eyes of a good neighbor, four criminals were caught! Please lock your windows, lock your doors, and be sure to IMMEDIATELY report suspicious activity.
