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.

Sounds like a TV action show plot.
Sounds like it worked out well for them.
Probably 'Tie me up so I don't come back to Get You!'.
“...a shotgun and three handguns...”
Sounds like the most retarded suspects in the world.
Some folks are just too dumb to even be criminals. These guys fit the bill.
“Officers recovered a shotgun and three handguns, Eisenman said, but it is unclear whether they were loaded.
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.
Four unnamed suspects? No pics?
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.
The officers waited outside at Columbine too.
