An LAPD helicopter circled over the northeast corner of Silver Lake for about two hours early this morning as police searched for suspects who had stolen a vehicle. The search began after officers pursued a stolen vehicle off the freeway and on to Glendale Boulevard, said Lt. Mike Menza from the Northeast Division. The car was recovered but the suspects evaded officers, who sealed off the area and began the search. No suspects were apprehended, Menza said.
Silver Lake blogger Diane Edwardson said residents on Corralitas Drive heard police on a loudspeaker advise them to go back into their homes during the search. That was at 2:40 a.m. “Two hours later helicopter is still lighting up homes and yards, no one is getting much sleep,” Edwardson said on her blog.
