CA:Four suspects arrested in bizarre home invasion robbery
latimes L.A. Now ^ | 28 December, 2013 | Christine Mai-Duc

Four suspects have been arrested after a bizarre, early-morning home invasion in Lincoln Heights on Saturday that ended with a resident tying up two of the armed men.

The suspects, armed with a shotgun and three handguns, allegedly entered a house on the 2600 block of Alta Street in Lincoln Heights, said Officer Norma Eisenman of the Los Angeles Police Department. The resident, who was the only person home at the time, saw the suspects on a home surveillance system and called 911 about 2:40 a.m., she said.

As police and SWAT units arrived, one suspect was seen fleeing the scene, and was immediately apprehended by officers.

Two other suspects remained in the house, while the fourth ran and hid, Eisenman said.

The two men inside then allegedly told the resident to identify them to police as victims too, and convinced the resident to tie them up in the home, according to police.

Tie me up, so the police will not suspect me...

Sounds like a TV action show plot.

“They came out, still tied up, thinking that we were going to believe they were victims also,” Eisenman said. “That’s what you call felony stupid.”

I'm speechless

Probably 'Tie me up so I don't come back to Get You!'.

Officers recovered a shotgun and three handguns, Eisenman said, but it is unclear whether they were loaded.

Huh??

Some folks are just too dumb to even be criminals. These guys fit the bill.

I bet they were. Lots of criminals drink or use drugs in advance of a “job.”

My point being that LEOs should be capable of determining whether a weapon is loaded or not.

It being californistan, I’m surprised the tied up criminals didn’t hear an ominous, “It sexy tyme now!” immediately after.

Yes They are stupid, but stupid people can kill you.

I agree with #10, One would think the Police were qualified to check the weapons for ammunition.

The surveillance system operator (vic) should end up with the guns.

“Let me guess, the “suspects” were melanin-enriched individuals, right?”

From the comments section at the link. I bet this guy will have his posting rights revoked by the LA Times.

The suspects obviously knew the gig was up. Many times in their reasoning they attempt to minimize their criminal severity by attempting to get rid of evidence such as guns/ammo...

In other words they could have flushed the ammo before hand thinking they'd face lesser charges and the cops just did not know if the weapons were loaded at the time.

No criticism of you meant or implied. I just thought the quotation it sounded funny.

That’s not really a rebuttal, after all they only shot themselves.

I think it does speak to their ability to handle and inspect firearms, Of course I am just having a little fun at the expense of the many qualified officers out there.
