The group of women known as the "Knock Knock Burglars" have been caught, police believe, according to CBS2. On Friday morning, a Glendale resident apparently noticed three women knock on a door before trying to pry it open. Police nabbed them as they drove away and allegedly found tools in the car that can be used for burglaries. In April, the LAPD was on the lookout for a crew of women using similar techniques in the Western San Fernando Valley. They would use the “Knock-Knock Burglar” method, which entails repeatedly knocking on the door and breaking through a back window if no one answers.

The three suspects are Sukari Joiffron and Valeria Acosta of Compton and Ziara Cannady of Los Angeles of Los Angeles.
