West Hollywood Sheriff’s are investigating a recent break-in at Micky’s WeHo, located at 8857 Santa Monica Blvd. The incident occurred this past weekend on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at 5:30 a.m. According to Operations Manager Adam Eramian, surveillance footage shows a man breaking-in through the back alley entrance. He used a crowbar to get inside the popular nightclub located in the heart of West Hollywood’s LGBT Rainbow District.
The suspect was seen roaming the building, and at one point even entered one of the offices.
“He didn’t steal a single thing or destroy anything,” Eramian told WEHO TIMES, “He was in the office and didn’t take a laptop or anything. He was carrying a crowbar.”
Eramian says it was still a close call that could have endangered one of his employees. “My manager was seen leaving through the front door at 5:28 a.m. and the man entered through the back at 5:30am” he said “They missed each other by minutes. Who knows what would have happened if they had encountered each other.”
West Hollywood Sheriff’s were called and sheriff’s report was filed. Micky’s WeHo also provided the station with video footage of the incident.
The person is hard to describe in the footage. He appears to be male of average height and build. He was wearing a hoodie over his head, a mask over his nose and mouth and he was also wearing gloves over his hands.
