At least 20 burglaries have been committed in an upscale Huntington Beach neighborhood this year by a known South American gang, according to officials.
Arrests have been made in connection with the burglaries in the Huntington Harbour area and charges have been filed, said Jennifer Cary, a city spokesperson. She could not say how many arrests were made, but said that there are currently no suspects in custody.
In each instance, the group was typically comprised of a “carload of two to five people,” Cary said. Several of them would participate in the burglaries, while at least one remained in the car to serve as a getaway driver.
The burglars took cash and jewelry but there was no information on the value of the stolen items, Cary said. KTLA-TV reported that the stolen goods were worth “millions of dollars.”
