    Video Catches Thief Breaking into Car in West Hollywood West Area

    A video shared on Twitter by the West Hollywood West Residents Association (WHWRA), shows two thieves breaking into the backseat of a vehicle yesterday morning on Dorrington Ave by Almont in in the West Hollywood West area between Melrose to Beverly and Doheny to La Cienega.

    The video shows two men approach a parked car. One of the suspects is a lookout while the other individual approaches the car and effortlessly breaks the back window to grab whatever valuables were inside. It appears the suspect just pushed the window and the glass shattered. Both men calmly walk back to their getaway vehicle, but not before their crime is captured on video. However, they are both wearing hoodies so, their faces are not detectable.

    “The video shows how easy it is for these individuals to smash a window, take property & get away,” reads the tweet from @WHWRA. “Avoid leaving visible items inside your cars that may entice these opportunistic criminals.”

    If you see something, say something. Anonymous tips can be called into Crimestoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or by texting 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.

    The purpose of Los Angeles Regional Crime Stoppers is to prevent and reduce crime, by forming a partnership among the community, law enforcement and the media to offer anonymity and cash rewards to anyone providing information leading to an arrest.

    Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.

    Crime Stoppers uses a three-part approach to preventing and solving crimes. The first part of the program is to empower the community by providing a safe way to report criminal activity. Secondly, Crime Stoppers partners with all forms of media in the Los Angeles region to inform the community on how to anonymously report crimes. Law Enforcement is the final part of the triangle; they follow-up on tips from
    community members.

    West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station polices the City of West Hollywood and the unincorporated communities of Franklin Canyon, Universal City (which includes Universal Theme Park, Studios, and Citywalk), and the Federal Enclave in West Los Angeles.
