LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police on Monday asked for the public’s help in identifying two men that may have information on a series of residential burglaries in Sylmar.

A neighbor interrupted one of the burglary attempts on June 16 about 11 a.m. in the 13800 block of Shablow Avenue, said LAPD Detective Donald Goossens of the Mission Station. The other burglaries were in the same general area.

The suspect is described as an Hispanic man about 20-25 years old, 5’9″ and weighing 165 pounds, with black hair.

The security photo depicts two men occupying a 1997 black four-door Cadillac Seville with license number 4YAG221. The paint on the roof is discolored.

Police believe the car was used one or more burglaries, but its occupants may or may not have been involved, Goossens said.

“If you see the car or the suspects, please call 911,” Goossens said. “Do not attempt to contact the suspects.”

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call Mission Station burglary detectives at (818) 838-9918; the Mission Station desk, (818) 838-9800; or Crimestoppers, (800) 222-TIPS.

    Aren’t you bored yet with copying and pasting the SAME ludicrous comment on article after article when it has NOTHING to do with the information at hand? You need a better hobby.

    The photo in this story does not appear to be from a security camera; it clearly appears to be from a red-light camera, and likely someone reported the license plate – then police checked records on the vehicle and pulled an old-red-light camera violation photo: the reason it says – “Police believe the car was used one or more burglaries, but its occupants may or may not have been involved, Goossens said.”

    But why did they bleach out the license plate? Maybe to be sure witnesses corectly ID/eyewitness alone and not rely on the plate?

    Nice photo!
    The passenger looks like he just dropped a loas in his pants.

  5. REAL NATIVE says:

    Why don’t police just go to the house of the registered owner of the car and question him?

      Many times these cars are registered to fake non-existing address, People that do these type of things know this. In this Case it probably the system that has failed us. by not actually making sure the address people are registering cars actually exist.
