responded to two burglaries Sunday. According to the report, a home in the 600 block of Las Lomas Avenue was burglarized, as well as a home in the 16500 block of Via Floresta. The suspects at the Via Florest address led police on a chase through Pacific Palisades to Santa Monica.
Palisades Patrol owner Scott Wagenseller told Pali Patch that the Los Angeles Police Department had put out a call for a burglary in progress in the 16500 block of Via Floresta at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday. Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies had a vehicle with three suspects, a silver Jeep Liberty, under surveillance when the call was made.
Palisades Patrol Officer Sipos was patrolling in the area of Marquez Avenue and Bollinger Drive when the suspect vehicle headed towards Sunset Boulevard from Via Floresta. Officer Sipos reported LAPD units got behind the suspect as it headed eastbound on Sunset Boulevard and followed it down to Temescal Canyon Road and PCH. When LAPD officers attempted a traffic stop, the vehicle fled down PCH and onto the 10 Freeway, said the Palisades Patrol report.
At one point, the officers called off their chase because the burglars were speeding severely, said officer Karen Rayner, a Los Angeles Police Department spokeswoman.
Police erected a one-block perimeter near Santa Monica College at about 8 p.m., and arrested 32-year-old Don Mosely, of Los Angeles, but two other suspects got away, said Raynor.
At 21st Street and Delaware Avenue, the suspects ditched the car and ran off in different directions. Rayner said officers recovered evidence from the car, including possessions from the Palisades home.
Mosely was booked on suspicion of burglary and held on $50,000 bail.
The other burglary was in the 600 block of Las Lomas Avenue. According to Palisades Patrol, officers were not positive as to exactly when the Las Lomas location was hit. Officers told Palisades Patrol that the Las Lomas burglary and the Via Floresta incident may be related. No word from LAPD if the investigation confirmed any connection between the incidents.
