An Echo Park Kia owner named Veronica certainly hopes so. A green and white sticker for the “pan-Latin” band called Chicano Batman was located on the rear window of Veronica’s 2002, burgundy-colored Kia sedan, which was stolen Monday from her parking space near Waterloo and Reservoir streets. While her car is kind of conventional looking, perhaps that Chicano Batman sticker will help it stand out. She asks for residents to keep an eye out for the car and sticker and to be aware of recent car thefts and break-ins in her part Echo Park west of Alvarado Street:
My car was stolen yesterday morning assuming around 3 or 4am. There have been several car burglaries in my area – particularly on my street of Waterloo. My roommate had her car broken into twice in the past 6 months as well as my former boss. My neighbor next door found 2 or 3 people trying to break into her apt. as they were also looming in our carport area. I filled out a police report but they were rather pessimistic that I will see it again, which I understand.
