The stolen VW Passat wagon was recovered 2 hours later in the evening after
it was stolen from Ridgewood Place; the car had Lo-Jack.
Potentially related activity that all neighbors should be aware of includes
the following: some renters who are subletting a house on Ridgewood MAY be
behaving badly/exhibiting what appears to be drug-induced behavior, as previous
recent incidents include: chasing after and shouting at an elderly neighbor
as she walked back from another neighbor's house last week; a break-in on
another neighbor's pick-up truck last week (Elmwood); strange man hanging out on
doorstep on Elmwood on Monday morning and refusing to leave....
The Vebber/Romanoffs, Goepels, Smolin and Eversz families are in
communication with the Hollywood Div. LAPD about this and I bet we'll get more patrol
service and surveillance now!
Thanks for everyone's involvement and remember to keep your porch lights on,
cars locked, (w/o valuables in car--and that includes not leaving credit
card receipts in your car!!), and report suspicious activity!
