LAUREL CANYON—On Thursday, May 22nd, we received an email from a Laurel Canyon resident stating that, according to a neighbor, there had been several burglaries in her neighborhood on Gould Street. That day her house had been broken into in broad daylight. Apparently the burglar(s) had pried open a window and pushed in the screen. The only items taken were some stereo wires, but drawers and closets had been rummaged through. Her husband had the impression that the burglar was not there for long. The incident has been reported to the police.
Earlier that Sunday, a man in baggy jeans and a backwards baseball cap had approached the woman's neighbor to ask if they'd had maintenance work done on the house. The neighbor had been suspicious due to the recent break-ins. There is no known connection between this man and the incidents. If you have any information on these burglaries, please call the Police Department at 323-485-4302.
