Senior Lead Office Brian Espin released the crime report for this area from September 5 to 11.
“We had a busy week with seven auto-related crimes and four burglaries,” Espin said. “We need to stay vigilant and look out for our neighbors and community. If you see something, say something.”
Espin also encouraged everyone to get a security system that will give instant notification if someone is on your property. “On one of the burglaries the victim received notification and returned home to check it out. Once our victim returned home the suspects saw the car pull up and they ran away. This also helps for us (LAPD), if you can see that someone is in your house and can give a good description of the suspects. It will bump our response up to a priority call instead of a non-priority (alarm only).”
