The LAPD’s Northeast Division today warned Atwater Village and Silver Lake vehicle owners to take extra precautions after a cluster of recent break-ins and thefts, many of them taking place in the afternoon. Four vehicles were reported stolen during the past week in Atwater Village between Glendale Boulevard and Los Feliz Boulevard, according to CrimeMapping.com. Meanwhile, in northeast Silver Lake, three vehicles were stolen near Glendale Boulevard and Fletcher Drive and four break-ins were reported near the southern edge of the Silver Lake Reservoir, including incidents on Duane Street and Resdale Avenue. A posting on the Northeast Facebook page said:
Much of the activity is taking place between noon and 6pm. We will adjust accordingly to tackle these trends, but want to remind everyone to Lock It, Hide It, Keep It.
In a separate warning, the LAPD Northeast Division said vehicle theft had increased in a section of Highland Park.
