Dry Cleaners Robbed on Via De la Paz


This video tape from the security camera captured the male, who broke into the dry cleaners.

If you recognize the suspect in this photo taken at 1:30 a.m. in Regal Cleaners, at 881 Via de la Paz, please alert Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin (310) 444-0737.

The criminal gained entrance early Tuesday morning, January 16, by smashing the glass on the front door.

An alarm went to the security company and the owner was notified. According to the owner, LAPD responded almost immediately.

The only thing taken from the dry cleaners was the credit card machine used for transactions.

The owner, who daily arrives at his business between 5 and 6 a.m., has seen the couple from the van, which is permanently parked across the street in front of Gelson’s (with handicapped license plates) looking in business windows.

The owner said the couple live in the van. The van owners also park a BMW on the street near the van. After the break-in this morning, the BMW was gone.

Cleaner owners hope that maybe the condominium building next to the dry-cleaning business or that Gelson’s across the street from their business have video tapes that might provide more leads.

In the meantime, this morning, owners were having trouble getting someone to come and replace the door glass. In the early afternoon, LAPD was onsite capturing fingerprints.

LAPD responded the robbery on Via de la Paz.

    I have been calling for months trying to get rid of the van and bmw. Because they have handicap plaques there is nothing parking enforcement can do. At any time of the day is there is rarely parking available on the street.
