SILVER LAKE — Streets were closed off and police dogs called in this afternoon as officers looked for a parolee-at-large.

The search began after police recognized the parolee-at-large, said an officer at the LAPD Rampart Division.  The suspect was apprehended but there were no details, however, about how the suspect may have violated parole.

One resident who asked to remain anonymous said that police shut down Coronado Street between Bellevue Avenue to Temple Street at about 1 pm. At least 20 officers were seen along Bellevue.
