City of Los Angeles mayoral candidate Karen Bass said two firearms were stolen from her Baldwin Vista home after a break-in on Friday, September 10.
Bass said the firearms were “securely stored,” and added that no other valuables were taken from her home.”
“Last night, I came home and discovered that my house had been broken into and burglarized,” Bass said in a statement. “At this time, it appears that only two firearms, despite being safely and securely stored, were stolen. Cash, electronics and other valuables were not. It’s unnerving and, unfortunately, it’s something that far too many Angelenos have faced.”
In a press release, LAPD gave details on the suspect, along with a photo taken from surveillance footage, saying the suspect was a Hispanic male, around 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds.
The man was also wearing a surgical mask, a Dodger-style blue and white cap and black Asics sneakers.
“Los Angeles Police Department, Southwest Division Detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a person who is suspected of a burglary in the Baldwin Vista community,” the LAPD bulletin read. “…. a suspect entered an unoccupied residence and removed property from the location. According to the victim, there were several valuables, electronics and U.S. currency in view that were not taken.”
Rep. Bass will face local businessman Rick Caruso in the race for Los Angeles mayor on November 8, after receiving more than 43% of the vote in June primaries, to Caruso’s 36%.
