Police Release Images of Suspected Boyle Heights Jewelry Theft Suspects

By City News Service

Los Angeles police Tuesday made public images of robbers who jerked gold chains off the necks of at least two people in Boyle Heights and who may be part of gang committing similar crimes.

A tall, skinny 20-something black man stole chain from around the neck of girl near Cesar Chavez Avenue and Fickett Street on Sept. 24 about 1 p.m., police said. The robber was estimated to be at least 6 feet 3 inches tall.

LAPD released a video showing the suspect, above, running to an awaiting Mercury Sable.

The next day, a woman reported a similar crime, but the robber was described as a 5-foot-5-inch black woman in her 20s, who fled in a car driven by a black man with a bald head, police said.

Anyone with more information about the crimes was asked to call Detective Miguel Barajas at (323) 342-8991.
