Police: Burglaries Reported at Studio City Homes Under Construction

The following information was supplied by the North Hollywood Division of the Los Angeles Police Department.

LAPD Senior Lead Officer Michael Lewis submits a warning to the greater Studio City community about a recent rash of burglaries:

In the past week I have seen that homes currently under construction are being targeted by burglars. If your building a house, renovating a house or if your a contractor working on a house please take the necessary precautions and protect your property. In most of these burglaries it's the construction equipment that is being targeted. However, I have had a safe stolen from one residence.   

If you live next door to a house under construction please pay special attention to property. It's likely these suspects are breaking in sometime in the middle of the night. Surveillance cameras and signs on the property warning that surveillance cameras are in use might be a wise investment.

Common guys. Let's give these guys a break. They're probably part of the early release program, just trying to get a leg up financially after having been incarcerated.

The homeowners of a Studio City house was having it renovated before their move. The new washer and dryer were installed well ahead of the time and were stolen. Appliances would be best placed at the last moment.
