A suspect wanted in connection with more than 30 masked burglaries in the Los Angeles area was free on bond this morning after being arrested in Beverly Hills following a traffic stop.
Police stopped the suspect, identified as Rockim Prowell, 30, of Inglewood, on Sunday and found items, including a face mask, in the vehicle he was driving that linked him to a string of burglaries, according to the Beverly Hills Police Department.
Prowell was suspected in at least two burglaries in Beverly Hills. A flat screen TV was taken in both incidents, ABC7 reported.
A search of his Inglewood home turned up additional items that linked him to the burglaries, police said.
On Thursday afternoon, Los Angeles police put out a tweet with surveillance images of the suspect.
“It was odd this burglar’s mouth was always open when seen on surveillance video,” the department said, a reference to the suspect’s mask.
“When he was caught breaking into another home we discovered why.”
Prowell was released on bond about 6 p.m. Thursday, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department jail records.
