[LASD] – This past week in Zone 7, the following Part 1 crimes occurred:
(1) Robbery, (5) Commercial Burglaries, (3) Thefts from unlocked vehicles (2) Petty Thefts and (2) Grand Theft Auto.
On Wednesday 09-12-12 a robbery occurred at 19120 Soledad Canyon Road at the Bank of America. This highly publicized incident occurred when three males entered the location with a firearm and took a large sum of money. Shortly after the suspects fled the scene, observant deputies located the vehicle on the southbound 14 Fwy. and initiated a pursuit when the suspects attempted to avoid apprehension.
During the pursuit, two suspects exited the vehicle at two separate locations of the 210 Fwy. Two suspects remained in the vehicle and continued driving until they reached South Los Angeles. Once on surface streets, the suspects began to throw money into the street, creating a dangerous environment for both deputies and bystanders. The suspects eventually stopped their vehicle and were taken into custody. One suspect who previously exited the vehicle on the 210 Fwy. was apprehended inside a containment set up by assisting units. One suspect is still outstanding and the investigation is continuing.
There have been several commercial burglaries in Zone 7 over the last month, five in the past week. On 09-15-12 at approximately 1:50 am, a burglary occurred at the 26500 block of Golden Valley Rd. An unknown suspect shattered the rear window of the location and took several thousand dollars of human hair and wigs. A second burglary occurred at the same location approximately five hours after the windows were boarded up. An unknown suspect pulled a board off the window, entered the location and took the cash register containing U.S. currency.
A burglary occurred near the 19900 block of Soledad Canyon Rd. when an unknown suspect smashed the front glass door and took money from the cash register.
On Friday 09-14-12, a burglary occurred near the 18500 block of Soledad Canyon Rd. An unknown suspect entered the location through the ceiling and crawled toward the front counter.
