Late-night police activity shakes up Silver Lake

Silver Lake   —  What was going on in Silver Lake early this morning? Residents reported hearing a police helicopter hovering overhead for hours while officers and police dogs searched backyards and warned residents to stay inside.

“SWAT cops [with a] German Shepard dog seemed to go door-to-door ringing bells at 4 am asking people to stay inside and letting them go through gateways and backyards searching for someone,” said an Eastsider reader who lives in the 800 block of Occidental Boulevard.

The Eastsider called LAPD station houses, media relations and the department’s air unit to find out what prompted all this activity. But no one contacted this morning knew what happened last night.

One Twitter user said the police were searching for suspects who may have been involved in the robbery of a bar in the 2800 block of Sunset Boulevard. But that could not be confirmed.

All that we know for now is that there are lot of sleep deprived people in Silver Lake this morning.

  1. They didn’t ask to be let into the yard at my house – the cops just barged in through the side yard gate (reached over the 6″ tall fence and unlatched it from the inside) and then went rifling through all our stuff in the backyard. They let themselves and their their dog into our garage too. They were about to climb under the house into our crawlspace !!! when they got an all clear on the radio and so left.

    • Stop complaining . . . . Cops are there for a reason to protect you and your shit. You would have been pissed had they not went in your yard and the scumbag was in there or your garage. Smh
