Police Seek Parolee in Series of Westside Home Burglaries
A spike in daytime residential burglaries on the Westside during October had detectives scratching their heads. That was until October 16th when a fingerprint from a recovered cell phone taken in a Santa Monica burglary led back to parolee Daniel Perez. Later that day, another burglary in West Los Angeles was connected to Perez.
In all, he's believed to be involved with at least 21 burglaries, according to the LA Times.
After a burglary conviction, Perez was paroled in 2004 from state prison and has twice violated parole. He is described as twenty-eight year old male Hispanic, with black hair and brown eyes. He stands at five feet nine inches tall and weighs one hundred and eighty-five pounds.
