Crime Report from February 27 to March 5:
Pacific Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin released the crime report (below).
“As you can see, we got hit hard with auto-related crimes,” Espin said. “The few by PCH and Sunset and on Temescal were all hikers or surfers hiding their keys while they go in the water or leaving valuables in the car. These criminals are waiting for the opportunity, let’s not give them the chance to take our stuff. Even if your vehicle is parked in your driveway the criminals don’t care. I recommend installing motion sensor lights for your property.”
