Sections of Highland Park and Silver Lake have seen numerous vehicle breaks-ins and thefts this week, prompting a warning from the LAPD Northeast Division. The division’s Twitter feed warned of a rash of vehicle break-ins west of the Silver Lake reservoirs. LAPD crime stats presented on CrimeMapping.com showed four vehicle break ins during the past week in the area, with two of them taking place last Sunday. “Pls lock & secure your cars this weekend!” said the Northeast Division Twitter feed.
The Northeast Division did not mention Highland Park, but several vehicle owners reported their cars stolen there during the past week.
Five vehicles were reported stolen between Feb. 10 and Feb. 17 in the blocks south of York Boulevard. Three of the thefts took place on or near Buchanan Street.
