By On March 28, 2019

Burbank police were called to the 1800 block of N. Kenwood around 9:25 am Tuesday for a report of a possible burglary with the occupants still inside the residence.

Arriving on scene, officers were able to stop a vehicle and detained the driver after finding items of evidence inside the car with two additional suspects still outstanding.  A perimeter was quickly established in the area to contain the men.

Police searched the area house by house led by the Burbank Police K-9’s with assistance from both Glendale and San Fernando who also sent their K-9 units in the massive search. There was also support from above with police helicopters.

Police were finally able to find the men after about four hours of searching with both being found underneath a house on Maple Street.  Both men were then taken into custody with further incident.

Police released the names of the suspects as:

  • Katie Frank, a 22-year-old woman from Los Angeles
  • Elias Valdez, a 26-year-old man from Los Angeles
  • Jesus Ruano, a 28-year-old man from Los Angeles

The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office will review the case and recommend charges.
