An Investigation by Torrance police resulted in the arrest of a man detectives say was responsible for thefts in a number of Southland cities, as well as heists in Minnesota.
Police said 48-year-old Brian Williams was involved in over 30 commercial burglaries in Los Angeles County dating back to 2019, as well as over 100 in Minnesota. He is connected to crimes in El Segundo, Carson, Huntington Beach, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood, according to a criminal complaint. He targeted large office buildings in pursuit of cash, police said.
Williams was known to operate under a series of aliases, according to police. Detectives believe he worked with an accomplice in some of the cases, and they’re asking for public help in pursuing more information.
