LAPD police helicopter over Echo Park.Police late Monday night captured a pair of suspected car thieves in Echo Park after they fled from the stolen vehicle, prompting a search of the surrounding neighborhood. As a police helicopter overhead, officers on the ground sealed off the area near Mohawk and Mayberry  streets shortly after the incident began at about 11 p.m. Lt. Mike Menza with the Northeast Division said one of the suspects was apprehended in a back yard; the other on a front porch.


  1. Man, was this annoying last night or what?

  2. amen to that.. 2 less jerks on the street though. Fair trade ūüôā

  3. Glad they got ’em! With all the helicopter debate it is nice to see that, this time at least, they apprehended the suspects with their assistance.

  4. The chase came in to my hood in Silver Lake past the 2 onramp near Cha Cha. A cruiser drove up and down the streets announcing on his loud speaker that the cops were looking for suspects on foot and everyone should go inside and lock their doors. Pretty scary stuff but nice to know that officer knows how to keep people safe. I’m glad the good guys won.

  5. Just another day in my hood!

  6. Damb if it was the Homies and if it was other Lames and the Enemys that’s Firme and MAYBERRY STREET CRAZYS Gang all day everyday! Just another day in the Hood! So Act Right!!!!!


  8. Welcome…to the hood!
