Burglars Steal Safe Holding $10M In Jewelry, Cash From Wilshire District Home
LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles police need the public’s help to identify the burglars who stole a safe, which held about $10 million in personal property and cash, from a home in the Wilshire District.
The burglary happened March 13 at 8:30 p.m., when a neighbor heard noise coming from a home in the 200 block of South Highland Avenue. A home security alarm went off, and LAPD Wilshire Division officers were sent out.
The officers discovered the burglars had jumped over a security gate and smashed in a glass door to get into the home. Once inside, the burglars ransacked the home and found the safe inside a walk-in closet, according to a police report. They used a rug outside the bedroom to move the safe down the stairs and out the front door.
Police say the safe was believed to contain personal documents, jewelry and cash valued at about $10 million.
Anyone with information about this burglary can call Officer Rafael Virrueta at (213) 486-6983.
