LAPD Warns Van Nuys Residents To Keep Windows Locked After Rash Of Burglaries

VAN NUYS (CBS) — The Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys Station issued warnings Wednesday to residents about recent strings of home burglaries and car thefts.

Police advised residents to lock their windows because of a rash of burglaries through unlocked windows.

Senior Lead Officer Trent Berry said “we have recently had residential burglaries where the suspect was able to gain entry through an unlocked window.”

Berry urged residents to “harden the target” and lock their windows when not at home.

Officials also warned drivers of older Honda Civics and Accords that these cars have been targeted in recent weeks.

Officers suggest drivers lock their cars, park in a secure, well-lit area and employ an alarm system.
