Likely Suspects in Norma Triangle Armed Robberies Have Been Arrested


Beverly Hills police officers pulled over a car last night on Sunset Boulevard near Hammond that contained three men who are likely suspects in several recent armed robberies in West Hollywood’s Norma Triangle.

The men were stopped around 10 p.m. last night driving the same car caught in a video of one of the robberies on Aug. 9. The Beverly Hills police notified the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, whose deputies took the men into custody. Lt. William Nash at the Sheriff’s Station said detectives are interviewing the men to try to determine if they are the suspects. Two of them are under 18, he said, and one is an adult. No further information is available at this time.

One of the robberies, of a West Hollywood man who was walking his dogs on North Wetherly Drive near Cynthia Street on Aug. 9, was captured by a video  camera installed on a nearby apartment building. The video, posted above, shows the two robbers pulling their guns and removing something from the man’s rear pocket. They then headed for a parked car and drove away. A neighbor of the victim told WEHOville that the robbers asked for his keys, which included car keys and apartment building keys, and his mobile phone.

The same men apparently committed another robbery on Hilldale Avenue near Cynthia Street and a third on Doheny Drive near Cynthia.

John, nice friends. My friend was walking in the area and saw the car speed away in one of the incidents. That’s how she got the license plate and gave it to the police. So crazy that the police had the license plate and make/model of the car for a couple of DAYS before they put out an APB. I know this because they called her a couple of days later to “be sure she was sure” about the license plate, so they could put out the APB. It was infuriating, because they could have caught them that night. No… Read more »

I guess if the perps read Wehoville.com they might have stayed away. 😉

Interested to hear about the licence – if they had it immediately, might not have arrests been made earlier? That would have been easy to do assuming suspects hadn’t fled (or it wasn’t a stolen car). It sounds more likely that both the LASD and BHPD were on the look out for a car of this description (the perps might just as easily gone over a block to BH) and when someone saw it, and that there were three young males in it, pursued it.

Just guessing, hope we hear more details.

Beverly Hills has license plate readers on the borders of their city to ID cars, that’s how they got a hit on the car. WeHo proposed installing the same technology a few years ago but the citizens didn’t want big brother watching them. See how technology like this is more necessary than none.

Wonder if the cops found guns on them or in the car?

Juveniles are not charged with crimes per se, they are charged under the Welfare and Institutions Code. Therefore they can not be identified in Calif.

I hope the identities of these street criminals will be made public. The adult for sure & I see no reason why teenagers who terrorize & rob people on their streets should not also be publicly identified as well. That would be one way to deter them from continuing their lives of crime

Todd – apparently one of the victims was able to provide a license plate to police.
