The man suspected of repeatedly trespassing homes on Laurel Way and Crescent Drive in Beverly Hills was arrested Wednesday while a female companion was detained.
Christopher Turner, 35, was arrested Wednesday afternoon outside a home on Laurel Way, according to Beverly Hills Police Department Capt. Giovanni Trejo, its public information officer.
Officers were dispatched shortly before 8 a.m. Sunday to the 1000 block of Laurel Way, near Beverly Drive, in what was initially thought to be a residential burglary. At some point during the investigation, the call was downgraded from a burglary to a trespass. No one was apprehended after a lengthy search with “heavy police presence,” according to a police statement.
Officers, with the assistance of the department’s drone and a sheriff’s department helicopter, searched Tuesday night for a trespassing suspect in the area of the 1000 block of Laurel Way, but the suspect was not found, police said.
Turner was jailed at the Beverly Hills Police Department facility and is facing a charge of felony burglary, according to Trejo.
