Last night at 2:30 a.m. a resident at the 1000 block of Vernon heard someone enter their home and called police. The resident was able to see the back door was open, understandably freaked and locked themselves in a room waiting for police. LAPD showed up fast, called for an airship and set up a perimeter but the suspect had already fled on foot. They stole iPads, a phone and a few other items that weren’t of value and were dumped along the escape route.
DO NOT LEAVE VALUABLES VISIBLE THROUGH WINDOWS. PEOPLE WILL BREAK IN AND STEAL THEM. Motion alarms, lights, and a big dog help deter thieves!
