CRIME—Pacific Palisades May 21 to 25 – $52,000 in Jewelry Taken

Pacific Palisades Senior Lead Officer sent the following message on June 1.

“I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend. As you can see in the pictures, we (LAPD) were out in force in the Palisades. It was relatively quiet except for a few incidents.”

Espin said that the accident pictured was because a vehicle was driving too fast down Temescal Canyon Road, lost control and hit a couple of parked vehicles. “Overall, the beach was quiet mainly due to the weather (cold and overcast),” Espin said.

This accident occurred on Temescal Canyon road over the Memorial Day Weekend.



Espin also wanted to warn residents of a crime being perpetrated on the City’s elderly.

 A woman was out walking in the Alphabet Streets around 2:15 p.m. on May 30, when a couple drove up to her and asked for directions.

The Palisades resident, 80, said on social media, “A woman jumped out and grabbed my right hand and tried to put a green stone in my hand. She spoke rapidly, saying in her Eastern European accent, it was her mother’s. I pulled back and said ‘no, thank-you’ and tried to pull away. She also had a necklace, that she tried to put on my neck. I was against a white wall. She then grabbed my left hand and tried pulling off my diamond wedding band.”

The woman managed to get into the street, as a jogger was approaching. The couple drove off.

Espin said, “I spoke to our Theft Detectives who advised me that this type of theft by trickery has occurred all over the City of LA.”

The SLO said that these suspects seek out community members and try to distract them by placing their hands all over their arms and wrists to remove jewelry.
