Wednesday morning, December 18, several residents in the northeastern part of Burbank discovered their cars had been broken into overnight, in two locations very close to each other. Burbank Police took reports starting at 6 a.m. on December 18, for three vehicles in the 500 block of E. Verdugo Ave., and four vehicles in the 300 block of S. Sixth St.
In all cases, windows were smashed and miscellaneous items were taken. Stolen items ranged form sunglasses and CDs to a duffel bag, green and white high heels, clothing, a camera, a case of water and in one instance, the car’s registration card.
The cars were all parked next to each other in the two locations and ranged from a Mazda, Mercedes and Honda to a Volkswagen Passat, BMW, Ford Taurus and Toyota.
“Don’t leave anything visible in your vehicle,” advised Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police. “Not an iPod cord, a book… nothing. Take it all inside the house with you overnight.”
