On December 10, 2015 at approximately 9:45 am, a black vehicle believed to be a 2000-2003 BMW 330ci with tinted brake lenses and an aftermarket trunk and rear bumper, stopped in front of a residence in the 200 block of S. Hillcrest in Anaheim Hills. A male driver exited the vehicle and approached the front door. The male appeared to knock on the door and ring the doorbell for several minutes. After no response he returned to the driver’s side of the vehicle and sat in the driver’s seat.
Shortly thereafter, two different males exited the passenger side of the vehicle. Both were wearing black hooded sweatshirts with the hoods pulled over their faces. They walked to the back yard of the residence through a side gate. Both males ultimately entered the residence. Once inside, the two suspects encountered a resident who was inside. One of the suspects brandished a firearm and they then fled with personal property stolen from the residence. All three suspects were last seen fleeing in the black BMW southbound on Hillcrest. The vehicle had paper plates on both the front and the rear.
Detectives from the APD Robbery Detail are actively investigating the case. Video from a neighboring residence shows the suspects driving slowly past the residence several times before the crime. Portions of the video is being released and we are asking anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identification or with information regarding the crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 855-TIP-OCCS or www.occrimestoppers.org.
