A protected is pulled from a Hollywood Hills canyon Tuesday Aug. 16, 2022.

The wild hypothesis started when Los Angeles firefighters with heavy rescue tools pulled two giant safes Tuesday afternoon from the brush-covered canyon. The mysterious discovery was made close to the Universal City overlook, which choices sweeping views of the San Fernando Valley to the north. 

Instead of expansive views, residents took in a extra uncommon sight on the location when an roughly 4 1/2 foot-, 600-pound metal protected was pulled from thick brush. When fire-rescue personnel retrieved that protected, they noticed one other smaller protected not distant. 

Both had been slowly pulled up the hillside utilizing ropes throughout a three-hour operation in steep and tough terrain.

The smaller protected turned out to be empty, however the second stay locked Tuesday evening. The safes had been taken away by the LAPD.

“It could very well have been taken in a burglary or robbery,” mentioned LAPD Detective Tim Kirkpatrick. “It’s evidence and we want to follow up on all leads possible.”

Kirkpatrick mentioned the LAPD has a group {of professional} safe-crackers, who managed to open the protected Wednesday.
