HOLLYWOOD HILLS — Los Angeles Police Department burglary detectives are seeking the community’s assistance in identifying suspects who were caught by security cameras burglarizing an elderly victim’s home.

On October 4, 2019 at 5:30 a.m., at the 1800 block of North Crescent Heights, surveillance video captured a male and female in a late model dark colored BMW enter the victim’s driveway. The driver exited the vehicle with bolt cutters and approached the victim’s front door.

The suspect used the bolt cutters to remove a lock box containing a key to the residence from the front door knob. He then fled the location with the lock box. One hour later, he returned to the residence and used the key to enter.

The suspect was inside for approximately two minutes and removed a telescope, cell phone and a handgun. The female suspect also entered the home but did not appear to take anything. The elderly victim was home and sleeping during the entire incident. Detectives believe the suspects have some familiarity with the residence or the victim.

The male suspect is described as White, heavy build, approximately 30 years old wearing a white-shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

The female suspect is a female White, approximately 25 years old wearing dark pants, a black jacket and black hat.

During the burglary, the suspects were accompanied by what appears to be an Australian Shepard dog.

SHERMAN OAKS (KABC) — A dog that was stolen from a Sherman Oaks home during a burglary last week has been reunited with her owner.

Stella, a 4-year-old labradoodle, was the most prized possession stolen from Barbara Goodhill’s home last Friday.

“She probably was trusting when they took her,” Goodhill said. “She’s just a bundle of joy and spirit and I guess too friendly for her own good.”

Goodhill went around her neighborhood posting flyers and offering a $500 reward, no questions asked, for Stella’s return.

Tuesday morning, Stella was brought into an Animal Services clinic in Downey by a man who said the dog was following him.Her microchip was scanned and she was reunited with Goodhill. Police still want to talk to two people […]

YG Reports Over $400k in Jewelry Stolen

WEST HOLLYWOOD (TMZ) — YG claims nearly half a million dollars in bling was taken right from under his nose — and cops are on the case.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the rapper filed a police report Monday in L.A. for grand theft, telling police over $400,000 in personal jewelry had recently been jacked from his hotel room at the London. And, by “recently,” we mean almost an entire week earlier.

We’re told YG claims sometime between 11 PM on NYE and 11 AM the next morning, a briefcase containing high-priced pieces that had been placed on top of a safe was a little lighter than usual. YG told cops he noticed the missing valuables on Jan. 1 … but for some reason, didn’t get around to making an official report until 5 days later.

No suspects have been identified in the case yet … we’re told YG noted he had people coming in and out of his room that night. Makes sense — it was a big holiday, after all.

That said, our sources say detectives will be looking into possible surveillance footage in and around the area to see if they can spot anything … in addition to their usual investigatory methods.
