Two arrested in burglary of Karen Bass’s Los Angeles home

Two people were arrested for their suspected role in a burglary of mayoral candidate Rep. Karen Bass’s home in which she said two guns were stolen on Friday.

Bass told Fox 11 reporters on Wednesday, Sept. 14, that two suspects who she said had stolen a pair of firearms from her house had been arrested. Los Angeles police later that evening confirmed that there had been two arrests in connection with a burglary in the Baldwin Vista community.

“(The firearms) were registered, they were locked in safe box and they were stashed away in a closet,” Bass said in an interview with Fox 11.

Police did not specify what was stolen, but said that according to the victim no valuables, electronics, or money in view had been taken during the break-in.

A license of the suspect’s vehicle had been identified at the residence at the time of the burglary, and on Tuesday, the vehicle was found near the area of Hazeltine Avenue and Sylvan Street in Van Nuys, police said. Officers waited for the suspects to enter the vehicle before making traffic stop arrests. They were both arrested on suspicion of residential burglary.

One suspect is being held on $500,000 bail, the other was  held on no bail.

The case will be presented to the District Attorney’s office.
