LAPD Pacific Area continues to see Hot Prowl (victim is in home) Burglaries. Most occur when residents leave windows or doors open/unlocked. Stolen items include smartphones, laptops, jewelry, car keys, and a garage clicker.
They have issued a directive:
1. LOCK YOUR DOORS/WINDOWS!!
2. Don’t leave valuables unattended near open windows.
3. Install and use an alarm (wireless systems sold online do not require permanent installation).
Four bicycles were reported stolen. Two were left unlocked in a underground parking garage.
1. Lock your bicycles, underground garages are not safe.
2. Lock your bicycle in an area where you can keep an eye on it, thieves continue to bypass some locks.
3. Keep your bicycle’s info (serial #)/picture to give police. Without this info it is difficult to recover stolen property.

My motorcycle got stolen on Wednesday from my apartment’s parking lot at Brooks and Pacific and I’d like to share the information with the Yo Venice community. The theft looked totally legit, happened in broad daylight, and I don’t want it to happen to anyone else.
An official-looking tow truck backed into our parking lot on Park Ct. in the middle of the afternoon and took about 20 minutes to load the (locked) bike onto the back. A neighbor actually saw the tow truck crew taking the bike but had absolutely no reason to be suspicious. Continue reading Beware of Motorcycle Thieves Using Towtruck!
