LOS ANGELES (CBS) —  Police discovered an armed parolee who crashed a car and fled into an abandoned Boyle Heights home early Wednesday.

The crash near 6th and Esperanza streets happened about 2 a.m., Los Angeles police Sgt. Titus Tyler said. The suspect, a man in his late 20s, fled the scene and officers saw that he was armed.

A LAPD helicopter saw the suspect hiding in bushes at a home on Esperanza Street, near 6th Street, Tyler said. The suspect sneaked into an abandoned house and was found by officers and police dogs at about 4:30 a.m.

The suspect, an alleged known gang-member, did not have a handgun on him at the time he was taken into custody, Tyler said.

No shots were fired and no one was injured, Tyler said. The suspect complained of minor injuries from the car crash.

It was unknown what the suspect was on parole for, Tyler said.

Officers were looking for a gun early this morning at a search perimeter in the area around 6th and Esperanza streets.

      Hey Senior Moron,
      It’s the truth. The whole city is a mess and loaded with ILLEGAL ALIENS and welfare mamas. Get a job and be a taxpayer, not a tax taker. Your third world toilet country offers no benefits to anyone. Here in the USA, you must PUT IN to GET SOME OUT.oh, you must also be a citizen, not an ILLEGAL ALIEN with fake papers.

    Everyday guy must be someone with serious issues. He keeps posting racist comments. He stereotypes hispanics too. I feel sorry for him, he probably has never had any love or affection in his life. “Ignorance is bliss” describes him perfectly.

    How can this moron be an “alleged” and “known” gang member at the same time? Is he or isn’t he?

    1. Patrick says:

      they say alleged known gang member bc the cops said he is a known gang member…but legal issues force the reporters to say alleged….. its just like if you see someone kill a person… they allegedly kill someone until they are found guilty in a court of law……kind of a stupid thing but hey if you dont want to be sued…….
