MONTECITO HEIGHTS — Police have released a surveillance video of two burglary suspects who might be connected to a series of break-ins, including a recent incident in which the suspects broke into a home while a female resident barricaded herself in a bathroom.

That burglary took place in the early morning hours of February 25 in the 3900 block of Paige Street, according to detectives at the LAPD Hollenbeck Division. “The burglars took her property and fled the scene,” according to a department press release.

The burglars involved in a separate break-in on Nov. 12 were caught on a surveillance video at a residence in the 3900 block of Elderbank Drive, according to LAPD. “This incident appears to be related to burglaries in the area,” said the LAPD release.

Detectives are asking for anyone with information to call Hollenbeck Burglary Detectives at (323) 224-0110. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477)


  1. Is that robber wearing a Mickey Mouse hoodie? Cool look, tough guy.

  2. Oh my goodness! Someone spoke their mind in the eastsider comment section! Careful Mr. you might be deleted!

  3. Like how they put their hoods up after the one guy thinks he spots the camera. Nice try, but someone knows who they are already. So busted.

  4. I’m certain these “gents” don’t look like the “thugs” and “scum” that eastsider trolls and ignoramASSES imagine in their ignorant rants about this area’s criminal element. As a mater of fact, neither do the vandals in the “Silverlake Surveillance” video in the right-hand column. I believe this is referred to as a “reality check”.

  5. Yes, he definitely mouths the word “camera” to the other guy. Does anyone have any clue what they are doing? Is that a shop vac & garbage can meant to disguise their true intentions?
    Lastly, did police check that bannister for fingerprints? Suspect 2 is not wearing gloves on his right hand & touches it multiple times. (Whereas Suspect1 is wearing gloves..)
