LASD - Marina Del Rey Station, Los Angeles County
Advisory: Lock Your Car-Take
Valuables With You. "Don't Be a Victim" of Vehicle Burglary
Hi Bel-Air Association,
Theft of personal items has on the rise in certain
Marina rel Rey communities.
To heighten awareness and empower the community as they assist us in
our effort to combat this problem, Marina del Rey Station dispatched
Volunteers on Patrol (VOP) to randomly check 30 vehicles within the
Windsor Hills, Ladera Heights and View Park residential area. The
results were astounding; 24 out of 30 vehicles were found unsecured.
The degree of which ranged from windows rolled down, door unlocked, and
trunk open. Seven of those vehicles had items of value “In Plain
Sight”. The concerned vehicles were secured and left a “Don’t Be
Victim” notice from Marina del Rey Station. A roll call of shame for
the addresses where the vehicles were registered was read aloud during
a subsequent Neighborhood Watch meeting held at Monteith Park, February
More than 100 citizens were in attendance. Needless to say, some were
embarrassed. In Plain Sight, Lock it or Lose it.
