#LASD Behind the Scenes Heroes Strike Again! Burglary-Robbery Task Force Arrest 3 More "Knock-Knock" Burglary Suspects

Have you seen these suspects driving slowly through your neighborhood? We currently have them in-custody.

Detectives from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Major Crimes Bureau, Burglary-Robbery Task Force (BRTF) are Behind the Scenes Heroes you won't see in uniform, and are usually unseen by the public while they work diligently to make a difference in many neighborhoods across LA County. Residential “Knock-Knock” type burglaries are something they take very seriously, and want to protect your community as if it was their own.

Detectives observed three suspects commit a residential burglary in San Pedro, on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, at approximately 1:15 p.m. With the assistance of LAPD Harbor Division, all three were taken into custody. One suspect is a male Black 17 years-old (name and photo not given).

We believe they have been actively committing residential burglaries for several weeks, if not longer, all over LA County. We have yet to link them to specific additional burglaries, however, once our ongoing investigation is completed, we are confident we will link the suspects to additional crimes.

If you recognize the suspects and/or the vehicle, in relation to a crime or suspicious activity, or believe you have information which maybe helpful, please call LASD MCB BRTF at 562-946-7187 or email BRTF@LASD.org
