Search for burglary suspects leads to 'sizable' closure of area in North Hollywood

February 7, 2011 |  9:15 pm

Police searching for two burglary suspects in North Hollywood established a large perimeter Monday night, authorities said.

Beverly Hills and Los Angeles police officers roped off a “sizable” area around the intersection of Whitsett Avenue and Oxnard Street about 5:30 p.m. after a burglary in the area, said Lt. Michael Hill of the Beverly Hills Police Department.

He declined to give specifics about the burglary but said of the perimeter, "It’s usually for a serious crime. You don’t set up a perimeter for someone who runs out with a candy bar.”

Hill said one suspect had been apprehended and authorities were hunting for two others.

Police were checking cars entering and exiting the area. Hill said he was unsure how long the perimeter would continue.
