Los Angeles mansion burglarized after guard distracted

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A burglary crew got into a Los Angeles mansion by using a provocatively dressed woman to distract a security guard.

Police Department spokeswoman Norma Eisenman tells City News Service four men overpowered the guard around 1 a.m. Monday as he was distracted by a woman in short shorts and a furry jacket.

The crew tied up the guard, took his gun and burglarized the home in the Beverly Crest area of the Santa Monica Mountains above Beverly Hills.

All five got away in a black-and-maroon minivan with paper plates.
