Suspect Gives Up in Van Nuys Standoff with Police
Around 6:30 a.m., a North Hills Walgreens on the 15300 block of Nordhoff was involved in an armed robbery. The suspects fled--there could be up to four of them--and police caught up with at least one of them, who began an hour long standoff as he refused to come down from a warehouse roof in Van Nuys. Up there, he paced back and forth talking on his cell phone as police cordoned off a section of the neighborhood around Haskell and Roscoe near the airport. After an hour at 8:15 a.m., he gave up, climbed down the ladder and was arrested without incident. The other two to three suspects are still on the loose.
