Burglary Suspect Arrested Friday Morning near Larchmont Village


On Friday May 9th at approximately 8 am  LAPD Olympic officers responded to a radio call and arrested a burglary  suspect on the 300 block of North Plymouth in Windsor Square.

Senior Lead Officer Joe Pelayo reports that officers arrested a male for breaking into four vehicles just east of the Larchmont Village shopping district. Of the four vehicles, three of them were parked on the 300 block of Plymouth and one was parked on the 300 block of Irving. An alert citizen on Plymouth saw the suspect checking car doors and making entry into the vehicles. The citizen flagged down an SSA security guard, who then called LAPD.  “It was great teamwork by community members and police officers coming together to get a felon off the street,” Pelayo reported to the Buzz.
