Police are hunting for an ex-convict they suspect broke into more than 20 homes in the West Los Angeles area, most during mid-day hours.The person police are looking for is a parolee who was recently released from prison, serving time for burglary.

Police are asking for the public's help in finding 28-year-old Daniel Perez. He is 5 feet 9 inches tall and weighs 185 pounds. He has a dollar sign tattooed below his left eye.

Los Angeles police say they want to question Perez about a number of burglaries in October, three of which occurred on Oct. 16.

At around 10 a.m. on Oct. 16, a burglary occurred on the 800 block of Gretna Green Way. While processing the crime scene, detectives found a cell phone dropped by the suspect that was taken from a burglary in Santa Monica just an hour earlier on the same day.

According to the LAPD, fingerprint evidence has identified Daniel Perez as the possible suspect in the burglaries.

Monday, the Beverly Hills Police Department said they are looking for the same suspect, wanted for a burglary that took place back on Nov. 15. According to Beverly Hills police, DNA evidence recovered from the crime scene connects Perez to that incident as well.

He is wanted for daytime burglaries in a number of places in Santa Monica, Torrance, L.A. and Beverly Hills.

If you have any information on his whereabouts, you are urged to contact the LAPD at (877) 527-3247.
