Manhunt Locks Down Exclusive Beverly Hills Neighborhood

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (KTLA) — A massive manhunt for a burglary suspect Tuesday night led to a lockdown in an exclusive Beverly Hills neighborhood.

According to police, two suspects were spotted trying to hop the gate of a property in the 1100 block of Calle Vista Drive, an area known for its celebrity homes.

Tom Cruise is among those who lives on the street.

“All I can tell you is Mr. Cruise lives on the 1100 block of Calle Vista, but I can’t confirm any involvement that he had,” said Beverly Hills police Sgt. Renato Moreno.

Beverly Hills police arrested one suspect, but at least one other is believed to be on the loose.

A police helicopter scoured the area, searching for hours. Police also conducted door-to-door searches with dogs.

For a time, several surrounding streets were locked down. Residents in the area were urged to lock their doors and report anything suspicious right away.

The outstanding suspect is described as a thin man wearing dark clothing and a hat that covered his ears.
