Hot Topic: Public Storage at Rose and 4th in Venice

Today’s story that will develop tomorrow is an email that has been sent to Councilman Bill Rosendahl and Captain Peters of the LAPD Pacific Division alleging that the managers of the “Public Storage” facilities at Rose and 4th have been knowingly using the property for “live-in homeless” housing.

From the email:

“We want a complete EXTERIOR and INTERIOR investigation by LA BAS, the Health DEPT and the City Council and media of these premises”.

The information put forth in the email allegation is from multiple parties.

Odds are the LAPD ought to go over there around 6:01 pm when the gates shut and ask the manager for a ‘lil walk through … if the allegations are in fact correct, the facilities will likely be pretty clean tomorrow!
