The Los Angeles Police Dept. took a suspect in custody that he was trying to take the car of singer John Legend's at a L.A. recording studio.
Legend's car was reported to be located outside the studio on Monday. Witnesses and security guards claim an individual walked up to the vehicle and opened the door and then sat inside. He then started searching inside the car to find keys or ways to get the car started, TMZ reported.
Security guards contacted the police after they watched the man's actions in video surveillance.
The LAPD reported that they confronted the man regarding what he was doing. After allegedly claiming that the vehicle was his, he fled. Police chased him and detained the suspect.
The suspect was arrested for attempted grand theft of a vehicle which is a felony and is currently being held on bail of $85,000.
The arrest appears to be an unrecorded incident, in the sense that Los Angeles continues to suffer an enormous wave of crime that is sweeping over the region and has affected many famous faces on the streets as well as in their homes.
For example, rapper Megan Thee Stallion's L.A. home was broken into in October.
Talk show host and actor Arsenio Hall's house was attacked by two burglars and nearly robbed two times while at the L.A. home.
In June, actor Casey Affleck's girlfriend, actress Caylee Cowan was home alone in the couple's L.A. home at around 3:00 a.m. when she awoke to see an intruder in her bedroom.
Pop star Lana Del Rey obtained a temporary restraint order (TRO) against the man she believes took her car and has been harassing her.
This month, Avengers and Captain America actor Frank Grillo slammed rising crime in the city controlled by Democrats after his boxing instructor, Azuma Bennett, was “shot and killed over nothing” in a fight on the streets. The actor also demanded “the powers that be” in Los Angeles to “get off their asses and fix this shit.”
