Four people have been arrested after an attempted break-in at the home of producer Dr. Dre as he remains hospitalised at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles after suffering a brain aneurysm.
As NBC New York report, Los Angeles Police arrested four suspects in the Brentwood area on Wednesday night following a pursuit that took place after a break-in attempt. Infrared cameras at Dr. Dre’s home alerted the authorities of the intruders.
The group reportedly attempted to flee the scene in a full-size white SUV, making their way through the Brentwood area before their eventual arrest at Sunset Boulevard and Amalfi Drive.
“Several individuals were hiking over a hill attempting to enter a property,” an LAPD spokesperson told Billboard. ”They were confronted by six private security [officers] and they fled the location. As officers attempted to pull the vehicle over a short pursuit ensued.”
According to reports, nothing is believed to have been taken during the break-in attempt. During a search of the suspects’ vehicle, police found burglary instruments, saws and crowbars.
On Tuesday, Dr. Dre took to Instagram to update fans on his current health status; thankfully, he seems to be doing well.
“Thanks to my family, friends and fans for their interest and well wishes,” he wrote. “I’m doing great and getting excellent care from my medical team. I will be out of the hospital and back home soon. Shout out to all the great medical professionals at Cedars. One Love!!”
