In response to crimes reported in our neighborhood in Nov/Dec., the
Hollywood station took action.
LAPD sent out a unit that specializes in plain clothes and unmarked
cars, to cruise Larchmont Village area. In the course of looking out
for us, the LAPD was able to arrest two parolees. One of the guys
confessed to several of the robberies in our area. Both of these men
were working under the guise of being homeless/trash can
When they were arrested, one of the men had burglary tools on him and
both were in possession of shopping carts. The LAPD informed me that
one of the M.O of these types is to root through the trash bins in the
back of the house then if the opportunity arises, they attempt to
break in the house.
Both men are in jail and are expected to be there for quite a while.
