A robbery suspect who was thought to have barricaded himself inside a Bell Gardens residence turned out not to be at the address, police said on Wednesday.

Investigators conducting surveillance on a home in the 6000 block of Luddell Street beginning around 3 p.m. Tuesday eventually tried to call out the suspect, who was wanted in connection with a robbery in Santa Fe Springs, said Sgt. Kent Miller of the Whittier Police Department, which provides police services in Santa Fe Springs.

When they got no response, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department SWAT team was called in around 6 p.m., Miller said. A search warrant was obtained and deputies entered the residence, but the suspect was not there, and the scene was cleared by 10:30 p.m., he said.

Bell Gardens police assisted in the investigation, according to a watch commander at that department.
