Police officers with guns drawn apprehended a suspected vehicle thief in Silver Lake tonight near Effie Street and Lucile Avenue. About a dozen squad cars descended on the location at about 8:30 p.m. as officers surrounded an SUV and a suspect who was lying face down on the ground. “We heard tires screeching up Lucile with the cops chasing behind w/lights and sirens going,” said Matt Hartman, who took the above photo. An LAPD officer at the Northeast Division station said the vehicle had been stolen but had no further details.
