There was a break-in tonight in the 500 block of No. Beachwood between 7:30P-10:30P.
Not many details right now, but what I do know is:
The family was not home at the time.
Entry was gained from the back of the house - the back door was smashed in.
The burglars locked the family dog up in a room.
The family doesn't know all what was taken yet - as they just arrived home.
They are currently making a report to LAPD.
Please keep your eyes and ears open.
Report all suspicious activity to LAPD - if you think you see a crime in process, or even suspicious activity, call 911 to report it. Make sure to tell LAPD when making a report that they note in the report that there has been a rash of break ins in Larchmont recently.
If you see persons who don't look like they belong in the neighborhood acting suspicious; a car cruising the neighborhood slowing down to check out houses, take a picture with your cell phone and try to get license plate #.
We have to remain vigilant.
Lock all doors & windows. Arm your alarm system. If you don't have one, get one.
Leave a radio on when you leave the house. Have motion sensor lights installed.
Lock your gate to make access difficult to the rear of your property.
Look out for your neighbors.
