A pair of burglary suspects were arrested in Atwater Village early Sunday morning after crashing their car on Silver Lake Blvd. The suspects had been involved in a residential burglary, and the LAPD pursued the vehicle until it crashed. Both driver and passenger fled the car on foot. The LAPD set up a perimeter in South Atwater Village, and helicopers started circling the area at approximately 2am, while officers canvased the streets below. Both suspects were apprehended that same morning.
If you ever want to learn more about helicopters hovering above your home, you can call LAPD’s Air Support Division directly at 213-485-2600. When I called this morning, they answered the phone promptly and were incredibly helpful. They didn’t have the incident information on hand, and had to go downstairs to manually sort through the dispatch reports. They took my name and number and followed up with me in less than 30 minutes with the full details.
