BEVERLY HILLS—Officials from the Beverly Hills Police Department have made two arrests connected to a residential prowling incident that transpired on September 15. At approximately 12:45 p.m., officers received a call of a residential burglary taking place in the 600 block of North Roxbury Drive. The resident called the BHPD after seeing a male subject on his property tampering with a window of the home.

Lieutenant Elisabeth Albanese, Public Information Officer for the BHPD indicated in a press release to Canyon News that patrol officers from the BHPD quickly arrived on the scene and observed a vehicle speeding away. Officers later learned that that vehicle was reported stolen from the city of Los Angeles earlier in the day. Authorities stopped the vehicle and made contact with the driver, Jonathan Enrique Herrera, and a passenger, Larry Eugene Shipp.

A field investigation was conducted and officers determined that Herrera was the individual prowling on the victim’s property on North Roxbury Drive. Herrera, 27, of Los Angeles, was arrested for Driving a Stolen Vehicle, Prowling, Burglary and Possession of Narcotics Paraphernalia. Shipp, 65, of Los Angeles, was arrested for a No-Bail Parole warrant. At the time of the arrest, Shipp was on active Post Release Community Supervision for Robbery.

Detectives from the BHPD completed an additional follow-up investigation and presented the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Herrera was charged with Prowling (§647(h) – a misdemeanor). No charges were filed against Shipp, but he remains in custody for the No-Bail Parole warrant.

Herrera is scheduled to appear at the Airport Courthouse on Thursday, October 12.
