Rash of Burglaries Prompts Police Alert to Eagle Rock Residents

By EGP News

Los Angeles police are asking residents in Eagle Rock to be on the lookout for suspicious activities following a rash of residential burglaries between April 18 and 28th, and several car thefts during the same time frame.

Police say the residential burglaries have occurred at different times of the days, so people should remain vigilant at all times.

The auto thefts have been highest in the Eagle Rock and Colorado area, according to the LAPD alert. Burglaries are usually crimes of opportunity, so the best way to prevent them is “neighbors watching out for each other and reporting suspicious activity,” police said.

They advised residents to “make it difficult for burglars” by keeping windows and doors securely locked, not giving them places to hide, like high hedges and fences, keeping lights on and not leaving valuable items in plain sight.
