An Echo Park resident named Dawn reports that her car was broken into early Saturday morning on Laguna Avenue near Echo Park Avenue, with Dawn losing prescription eyeglasses, car registration, GPS system and “random items like a mirror,” she said. But Dawn was relatively lucky compared to at least six Echo Park residents whose vehicles were stolen last week.
During the same early morning hours Dawn’s car was broken into on Saturday, a vehicle was stolen a short walk away on the 1100 block of Laveta Terrace, according to the L. A. Times crime map. The day before, Nov. 19, another two vehicles – near Echo Park Avenue and Sunset Boulevard and Glendale Boulevard and Montana Street – disappeared. Earlier in the week, vehicles were stolen from the 1400 block of Lemoyne Street, the 1400 block of Kellam Avenue in Angeleno Heights and the 1800 block of Montana Street.
Dawn, who will be reporting her car break-in to police, provided more details about her incident:
“Parking is so hard now that I parked on Laguna near Echo Park avenue across from the church corner. I didn’t feel good about it there and it’s such a bummer to know that corner is such a problem.”
