Burglars clean up twice at Silver Lake cleaners

NeighborhoodWatchLogo.JPGThe owners of a Silver Lake dry cleaners discovered earlier this week that burglars had broken into the shop and taken $1,200 from the cash register. How did the burglars get in?  Through a hole in a wall made during a previous burglary, reports Officer Mario Mota with the Rampart Division. Here are the details in a burglary alert issued by Mota:

“ON 10/24/10 AT 1900 HOURS, THE BUSINESS WAS LOCKED AND SECURED. THE VICTIM REPORTED THAT THEY HAD INSTALLED A BOARD ON A WALL TO COVER A PREVIOUS HOLE FROM A PREVIOUS 459 [burglary].  AFTER CLOSING THE BUSINESS, THE MOTION DETECTOR WAS ACTIVATED AT 1930 HOURS.  THE FOLLOWING DAY THE VICTIM DISCOVERED THAT THE BOARDS ON THE WALL HAD BEEN PRIED OFF AND $1200 MISSING FROM THE CASH REGISTER.  INVESTIGATION REVEALED THAT SUSPECTS REMOVED A BOARD FROM THE WALL AND ENTERED THE BUSINESS. ONCE INSIDE, THE SUSPECTS REMOVED MONEY FROM THE REGISTER.”

  1. Which Dry Cleaners is this?

  2. Who keeps money in a register at night in this day and age?

  3. They left $1200 in their register? With a board covering a previous robbery hole? Couldn’t they have taken the money home? Or at least hidden it somewhere?

  4. um. don’t they have a safe? why would they leave the money in the register? I don’t get it.

  5. Armchair speculation: inside job.

  6. @ rizzo. I thought it might be best not to publish the name of that cleaners since that hole in the wall might still be there.

  7. @Will Campbell-

    That is moronic speculation. What possible benefit does a company get from stealing cash from themselves? A fire gets you insurance money. A cash theft only gets you higher insurance premiums which will easily exceed over time the amount stolen. You sound like a Tea Bagger who wants an apology from the victim after stomping their head. Nice neighborhood spirit.

  8. Libertad: watch out – if you talk trash, Will Campbell will stomp you or punch you or something. Totally not out of the question.
