Police Seek Person of Interest in Westside Burglaries

Residents are asked to help identify a man reportedly seen at one of the incidents, which have occurred in an area north of Sunset Boulevard and two miles west and east of the 405.

A series of residential burglaries in Westside neighborhoods close to the 405 has prompted police to ask residents to help identify a man reportedly at the scene of one of the incidents.

The Los Angeles Police Department is seeking a man who was seen trespassing on a property on Chalon Road in Brentwood. The homeowner confronted the individual, said Detective Greg Davis of the West LA Police Station.

“He told the [homeowner] he was lost and gave some other kind of excuse,” Davis said. “The homeowner noticed the screen door had been cut.”

The residential burglaries occured in the area just north of Sunset Boulevard within two miles west and east of the 405. The burglaries involve cut window screens and stolen jewelry, electronics and money. Davis said residents in the area should be aware of their surroundings and report any suspicious activity they observe.

Victims are often approached by individuals who claim they are lost or looking for an address as a ploy to canvass the area, Davis said.

“If you see suspicious people walking up and down the street in your neighborhood, call the police,” Davis said.

<24>I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, TagCent.com ( I just want to share this with you guys! )
