Update on Highland Park & Eagle Rock burglaries

The LAPD arrested two suspects over the weekend believed responsible for a string of residential burglariesLAPDBadge.JPG across Eagle Rock and Highland Park, said Northeast Division Capt. William Murphy in an email alert this afternoon. “On Saturday we arrested the second suspect and recovered property taken from some of the burglaries,” Murphy said. “We are also working the fence that was responsible for selling the stolen property.” In a previous email newsletter, Murphy said the burglars – some of whom may have traveled on bikes- were suspected of at least 10 break-ins during the past two weeks.

Meanwhile, in Echo Park on Sunday afternoon, police detained some males near the intersection of Echo Park Avenue and Duane Street as part of an investigation into a potential burglary. But Murphy said the “investigation determined no burglary and they were released.”
