LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police are urging a man to surrender on suspicion of being a burglar who targets homes while residents are attending funerals.
Police said Thursday that help from the public led them to name 44-year-old Brett Patrick Rogers in a felony arrest warrant in a residential burglary.
Police say that on March 11 the thief activated a doorbell security camera that recorded an attempted burglary at a Los Angeles residence while the victims were attending a funeral.
The same man is seen in a March 7 residential burglary in West Los Angeles, and detectives also believe he was involved in burglaries in suburban Glendale and Lakewood, all while residents were at funerals.
Police say Rogers may be staying in motels and hotels in Orange County.
