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.”
