A burglary suspect was still at large Wednesday after he evaded a police perimeter and K-9 units for hours in Koreatown.

Los Angeles Police Department officers responded just before 3 p.m. Tuesday to the 4500 block of West Second Street, near Western Avenue, on reports of a burglary after residents returned to their home and found several doors opened, according to Officer Tony Im.

Officers from the department’s SWAT team were also on scene and police established a perimeter in the area but the suspect was not found when they cleared the area at 8:37 p.m. Tuesday.

Police were still searching for the suspect Wednesday morning, an LAPD spokeswoman told City News Service.
