A transient was arrested for breaking into 146 Entrada in Santa Monica Canyon on November 8. This is the second time over the past two weeks that a transient has broken into that location. Last week, drug-making paraphernalia was found. On Monday, the individual living inside was arrested.
This crime report does not detail the graffiti that defaced the Clearwater Mural on the back of the CVS building on Swarthmore. Reportedly, different kids used different mediums. Terri Bromberg, the artist who initially painted the historical mural, spent hours cleaning it up with several helpers.
There was also vandalism at Cinque Terre West that was caught on camera and the owner said that it has been reported to the LAPD.

Espin, in an email to Palisades residents, said “Be Neighborly: Please help each other out and look out for your neighbors. You don’t have to like your neighbor, but you should be there in case of an emergency. Most crimes can be deterred by being aware of your surroundings and letting your neighbors know what is going on and to be on the lookout. When people are out and about with eyes on the street, most criminals take notice and will move on to another area where they will not be noticed or stand out.”
