Advisory: #LAPD #CAPTEGAN Seen a suspicious 90's white sedan (Possible Chevy Malibu) w 2-3 males on your street? Could be BURGLARS! Crime stoppers?!
West Valley has experienced an increase in residential burglaries in the area of Sherman Way to Victory Blvd, and Balboa Ave to Hayvenhurst Ave.
Reminder: With summer in full swing, people tend to open their windows more often. Don’t forget to lock and secure your residence when you leave. Leaving your windows open is an open invitation for a burglar to come into your residence.
Here are a few examples of things that may help prevent you from becoming a victim: If you decide to leave your windows open get a stick and put it in the window frame preventing your window from opening all the way.
Keep your bushes around your windows trimmed so there is no place to hide.
Post alarm signs in your front yard. Place a Beware of Dog sign on your gates.
If your residence looks like a hard target the criminal will be more likely to pass your house and move on to an easier target.
Remember Prevention is the best way to combat crime.
