'This Is It' Director

Cops Respond to L.A. Home

LAPD
officers raced to the home of "This Is It" director Kenny Ortega last week ... after an alarm went off in his home ... and TMZ has learned cops called in a chopper to help search for a possible bad guy.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... there was a breach in the garage that triggered the alarm ... and the alarm company notified police.

We're told when cops arrived, they didn't see any signs of a crime -- but just to be safe, they called for the eye in the sky to search for a possible crook ... who may have been scared off when the alarm was triggered.

FYI -- people in the area are on high alert because of a rash of burglaries ... but in this case, cops believe it was probably a false alarm.

That's quite an over-reaction for a possible garage break-in. I'm glad I'm not an LA County taxpayer.

You know it's a slow news day when a false-alarm from a week ago is making news.

..."called in a Chopper"?! Really???? for an alarm going off? Who the Hell is this idiot (besides a director)? Is this the president of the United States? LAPD has all of their priorities wrong. WTF?

The real question is why did "This is it" make a huge effort to portray Michael as being capable of performing a concert, when he clearly was not capable? You never see him finish even one song -- with the same clothes on.

It should be investigated what kind of financial motive the production company may have had for his death. We know he was worth $50M alive, with considerable expenses. He's worth $500M (and growing ) dead.

A chopper? Glad to see more taxpayer money being spent in MJs name. It was probably one of Jacko's Wackos looking to avenge the his death.

M.J. was hiding out in the garage and forgot about the alarm.

A chopper? Apparently Kenny must have Obama staying at his house.
Who gets a helicopter sent out for a possible non-violent burglary?

It was probably Michael Jackson and Conrad Murray roughhousing again--one of them tripped tha 'larm and they ran off laughing.
