Car Break-ins Slow in Fryman Canyon Area

In the seven days between March 12 and March 18, violent crime reports were about average and property crime reports fell.

Neighborhood groups have worked with police to help lower crime rates.

"Car break-in's have stopped in the area since the gave me six signs to put up telling hikers to not leave thier valuables in the car," said Studio City Lead Officer Mike Lewis of the Los Angeles Police Department.

It has been two months since Lewis put signs on Laurel Canyon and near the . Lewis attributes the low crime lately to the signs and said "a number of arrests of key people have helped also."

Lewis recently has had many emails from Studio City neighbors about a male and female soliciting couple.

Lewis said, "The reports are that the couple is very nice and they mention a neighbor nearby, they say they are from a college and are raising funds to study abroad." 

According to Lewis some residents are giving them $300 to $400. 

"A call has been made to the district attorney's office to see if this is even a theft by trick crime," said Lewis. Lewis urges people to not even answer the door.
