Fox News has reached out to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department for further comment.
Los Angeles police recently arrested 14 suspects in connection with 11 "smash and grab" robberies in the city in late November – but all 14 suspects are back on the street, the city’s police chief has said.
"All the suspects taken into custody are out of custody, either as a result of one juvenile, or the others as a result of bailing out or zero-bail criteria," Chief Michel Moore told Fox11.

Similar incidents have been seen elsewhere in California in recent weeks, including in the San Francisco Bay Area.
