ANGELENO HEIGHTS — Some Angeleno Heights residents this morning spotted a large group of heavily-armed officers on Marion Avenue that appeared to be preparing for action. Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division explains what’s going on:
They are a group of Rampart officers, working in conjunction with California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation parole officers and Los Angeles County Probation Department, conducting searches for outstanding parolees and those in violation of probation. There are several teams checking numerous locations in Rampart and adjoining divisions.
Buhrmester said the team of officers have been conducting searches for several hours this morning.
