Los Angeles police are searching for three suspects wanted in a string of burglaries in the Hollywood Hills and Beachwood Canyon.

Police are on the lookout for a group of burglars breaking into homes in the Hollywood Hills and Beachwood Canyon during the middle of the day.

Authorities said the three suspects were captured on surveillance video committing the crimes in broad daylight.

"I'm currently working on four homes that have been affected that we believe that these individuals are the suspects that are involved," Det. Jeff Childs with the Los Angeles Police Department said.

Video from one of the homes showed how the suspects were able to break-in during the middle of the day.

"They will knock on the door or ring the doorbell and once they are certain that no one is inside the residence they will find a way to make and attack and enter the residence," Childs explained.

Detectives said the suspects take small valuable items like credit cards and jewelry that they can fit into a backpack.

David Strauss, a neighbor of one of the recent victims, said he had a similar crime happened to him as well.

"When I came downstairs I found an entrance to the side of my home where the pool, it was opened and somebody actually was in the house riffling through my living room while I was upstairs," Strauss said.

Several residents in the area said they've already started taking measures to protect their homes.

"Codes on our exterior gates, cameras, alarm systems are in working order," Melanie Stagnaro said.

If you have any information that can help detectives in their investigation, you were urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
