Police are asking for help with tracking down suspects in a series of burglaries in Koreatown. Investigators say the burglars have hit apartment complexes on South Virgil Avenue and Shatto Place, and may be responsible for several other break-ins.

Los Angeles police hope surveillance pictures help them track down a crew of burglary suspects who have been targeting apartment complexes in Koreatown.

Those burglaries happened on October 19 between noon and 1 p.m. Images of three male suspects were captured on surveillance cameras in two different complexes.

Police say two African-American men and one Hispanic man, all between the ages of 16 and 20, entered buildings on the 400 block of South Virgil Avenue and the 400 block of Shatto Place, using the same method.

"They were outside waiting until the residents opened the gate," said LAPD Officer Gregory Baek. "Once the gate is open they follow the resident and then they knock on the door in each unit to see if nobody is inside. Once they found nobody is inside, they went inside through a window and took all the valuables."

Police say those valuables included DVDs, digital cameras, electronic games, jewelry and cash.

No one was injured but authorities be leave these suspects may be responsible for more break-ins
