LAPD seeks leads on 'Drill Lock Burglars'

Los Angeles police released a surveillance video Thursday in hopes of getting leads on a burglary crew nicknamed the "Drill Lock Burglars."

The video footage shows the burglars removing suitcases and bags filled with items from an apartment in the 3100 block of West 3rd Street in the Westlake neighborhood.  The burglars broke into the place by drilling holes into the door and lock, the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Detectives believe that the crew is responsible for other area burglaries, the LAPD said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Adrian Chin at (213) 382-9440.
