Just wanted to tip you off to the happenings on the block of Reservoir St. between Silverlake Blvd and Occidental [in Silver Lake]. It’s been nuts lately! There have been helicopters every few nights, circling the intersection of Sunset & Silverlake Blvd. with spotlights, or above our block, and a few weeks ago the cops were chasing someone through the yards, and pulled up in the street and drew their weapons. Then, last night, my fucking car [ black, 4-door, 1997 Honda Accord] was stolen. No joke. Reported it to NorthEast Division this morning. It was parked out in front of our house in the street. I checked EveryBlock and I see that there were three other incidents of GTA reported in the 90026 zip code yesterday alone. WTF is going on?
There’s been a lot of bullshit on our block from people parking for the Thirsty Crow (which I’m very fond of, don’t get me wrong, but it’s drawing a rowdy crowd who are parking on our street primarily), but I feel like crime has taken a pretty dramatic step-up in the last month or two.
