This morning, at approximately 11:00 a.m., South Gate – Lynwood Patch Latino witnessed a group of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department (LASD) deputies on the corner of Long Beach Boulevard and Agnes Street, in Lynwood.
The deputies at the scene would not elaborate on the incident. However, the Century Sheriff’s Station has informed Patch that they were responding to a possible burglary in progress at a residence in the 3500 block of Agnes St.
