Burbank Police Investigate Early Morning Explosion

This morning, at about 4:20 AM, Burbank Police responded to the Magnolia Car Wash in the 900 block of West Magnolia Blvd. regarding a loud noise, possible explosion that was heard.

 When the officers arrived, they found a stand-alone ATM Machine, located outside of the cashier’s office with significant damage to its outer shell.  Closer inspection of the ATM machine suggested that some type of explosive may have been used in an apparent attempt to steal money, or steal the ATM itself.

  Investigators with the Los Angeles County Sheriffs Department Arson/Explosives Detail responded to the scene and are assisting Burbank Police Detectives with the investigation.   

The car wash was closed at the time of this incident and there were no injuries reported.

Burbank Police Detectives are currently investigating this matter.  Anyone with information is asked to contact Burbank Police 818-238-3000.

No additional details are being released at this time.

Burbank Police Officers honored at The Third Annual Burbank Police Awards

On Thursday, several of Burbank’s finest came out for The Third Annual Burbank Police Awards Luncheon to honor their bravest who went above and beyond the call of duty. The awards went to people who are both sworn in and those who are not, but they all serve the community we love so much.

The luncheon that was hosted by The Burbank Police Foundation happened in front of a packed audience at the Pickwick Gardens. Jim Roope from Westwood One delighted the crowd as he served as a the Master of Ceremonies of the Awards Ceremony.

The first honor went to Officer Cameron Brown, who received the Lifesaving Medal. On October 28, 2016, he was off duty at a Halloween Haunted House with his family and friends, when something scary happened that was unrelated to the holiday. His 56-year-old friend Jon Howard with special needs suddenly collapsed and he knew something was very wrong because his friend was not breathing and he could not find a pulse. He instructed someone to call 911 as he performed CPR on his friend until paramedics arrived. Due to his quick reaction, his friend is with us today. Had Officer Brown not done what he did in the dark, cramped area, his friend would not be alive today. That is why he awarded For the Actions in the Saving and Preserving of Human Life.

The next award not only went to more than one person, it also went to three different police departments. The Professional Esteem Award was given to 16 Burbank Police Officers, 5 members of Burbank-Glendale-Pasadena Airport Authority Police and 2 members of the Pasadena Police Department Air Operations Sections. On June 24, 2016, shortly after midnight, Burbank Police Department received a call that a man was acting erratically with a possible handgun at the Bob Hope Airport’s McDonald’s. When the police officers arrived on the scene, they realized the man did indeed have a gun. Then they instructed the employees and the civilians to leave the restaurant for their own safety. Once everyone was out, the officers started a conversation with the man who threatened to shoot them. The longer they engaged with him, the more erratic he became. He fired his gun at the ceiling and cops did not fire back at him. Instead, they continued to talk to him. After several more minutes, he pointed his gun at the cops outside the restaurant and fired a shot at them that broke a window. At this points cop fired back injuring the gunman. He left through a window, fell to the floor and shot himself with a fatal bullet. Ending the standoff with no one besides the gunman being injured or killed. That is why the 23 brave officers were honored for their Extraordinary Efforts Earning the Esteem of Your Colleagues and the Community.

Sergeant Brian Gordon was also awarded the Professional Esteem Award and his honor was 6 years in the making. On July 2, 2010, a man in the K-Mart parking lot was somehow able to disarm a cop and take that officer’s weapon. The suspect was high on heroin and meth, and was determined to escape. The gunman exchanged shots with the two officers injuring one critically and the other suffered a gunshot wound to the hand. The officers were able to subdue the man and take him in to be booked on two counts of the attempted murder of a police officer. At the time, Gordon was a Detective who was assigned to be the lead investigator of the case. He spent the next six years building up that case with the District Attorney’s Office and the suspect finally went to trial last year. On July 15, 2016, a jury found him guilty. In October, the suspect was sentenced for his crime and is currently serving out his 81-year sentence thanks to Gordon’s hard work on the case.

Jennifer Moran works at the Records Bureau for the Burbank Police Department. She has been with the Department since 1995 and has been the manager for seven years. She oversees operations processing and maintaining public records, data entry, distribution of public records and providing quality services to the public. Moran also serves as the administrator of the computer-aided dispatch report system used by the entire organization. For her hard work, she too received The Professional Esteem Award.

They also recognized a recent retiree Steevo. A Belgian Shepard who joined the K-9 Unit in 2010 when he was just 3 years old. He was trained in narcotic detection, sent out on SWAT incidents, searching and locating hidden suspects and he also spent time doing community outreach. Steevo is now living out the rest of his life with his former partner Officer John Embelton and his family.

Last March, Dianne Guerrero noticed a young lost boy crying and sitting on a bus bench and went over to see what was wrong with him. She calmed the boy down until police arrived, even missing her own bus so that he would not be alone. When the police arrived, they took the boy with him and reunited him with his family. It is her Selfless Service to the Community that earned her this reward.

They also award volunteers and this year’s recipient for the Volunteer of the Year is Soon Hee Newbold Rettig. When she is not donating her time with BPD, she is an accomplished musician, composer and conductor, proficient in martial arts, a firearms expert and a media producer. Since graduating from the Burbank Police Department’s Community Academy, she has spent countless hours producing and directing several PSAs and informational videos for them.

In 2009, Police Technician Sharise Barker joined their Records Bureau Data Entry Unit. Six years later, she transferred to the Investigations Division as their administration support to the Detective Bureau. She is always willing to lend a helping hand and that is why she is this year’s Non-Sworn Employee of the Year.

Then it was time for the final award and that was handed to the Officer of the Year. Sergeant Mark Stohl began his career there in 2000, and since then he has served as a Patrol Officer, a Field Training Officer, Gang Officer, Gang Detective and a Detective in the Eurasian Task Force. In 2012, he was promoted to Sergeant, went back to patrolling so he could supervise, and mentor young officers. Three years later, he returned to Investigations where oversees the property crime investigations. He was instrumental in getting Ford Explorers equipped with the latest technology added to the fleet. He continues to mentor officers of all statuses and age, and they continue to learn from him. That is why he was thanked for his Selfless Service to the Community.

After attending the Awards Gala, I learned how much hard work and dedication the Burbank Police Officers put into our community and I want to thank them all personally. From now on, whenever I see a Burbank Police Officer, I am going to shake their hand and/or give them a hug, and most importantly tell them thank you. We can honor the individuals for risking their lives for us personally by letting them know we appreciate them. Once a year, they get to tell themselves they are appreciated for everything they do and I am honored I was able to be a part of it.

Units were immediately dispatched and swarmed the area along with Burbank’s  “Air1” overhead.

Units conducted a felony stop at Naomi and Scott Rd. on two subjects in a black BMW less than a block north of the address.

A search of the home by the Burbank Police Department eliminated the possibility of any outstanding suspects in the residence. The two males in the BMW were arrested at Naomi and Scott, and are considered persons of interest in this investigation.

It is still very early on in the investigation and more information will be shared as it is made available.

Watch Out For This Jury Duty Scam

It is a quiet Sunday morning and my phone suddenly rings. I pick it up, a man with a very heavy Southern accent asks for me and if I got a summons. I tell him no and he wants to know if I reside at my old address. An address I haven’t lived at in almost 3 years. When I tell him I didn’t, he tells me that there is a warrant out for my arrest because I have not shown up for Jury Duty.

A co-worker of mine just completed Jury Duty, so I am thinking maybe that he is telling me the truth. At this point, I am nervous. Did Burbank send the request to my old address and did the new people not return it to sender? In the back of my mind I am thinking, but I have registered to vote at my new address and have voted several times since I have moved. Still, I stay on the phone with this man. A man who didn’t know how to pronounce the street that I used to live on. People in Burbank know how to say it, but for some reason that didn’t faze me.

He tells me to grab a pen and paper so I can write some information down. In this day and age, I don’t have either handy. I find one, but the pen doesn’t write. I tell him let me go to my computer to write down what he needs me to write down. He gives me some letters and numbers, and I didn’t realize he was not giving me the military names for letters like Tango for T. Again your mind isn’t thinking logically at that point.

As I write down these letters and numbers, he explains to me that I owe two dollar amounts. $450 for the first charge and $500 for the second. Then he tells me that they don’t accept cash or checks and I would need to get money from Rite-Aid. I know the sirens should’ve gone off by now, but I am afraid I am about to add my name to Arrest Reports I update on this site.

He tells me that the money will be reimbursed to me tomorrow, but I still have to pay him today. In fact I didn’t even get suspicious when he started hitting on me and tell me he likes my voice. I am thinking he is trying to calm me down. Nope.

Anyways, he now tells me that he needs my cell phone number so he can remain in contact with me as I go to drop off the money. I give it to him. He says to me that he will call me back on it and I need to get the money ASAP. I tell him I need to take a shower and please to give me 20 minutes. He tells me that he can’t. I negotiate him down to 10 minutes and he says he needs to remain on the phone with me while I shower. I know, that is very creepy. I also realize there is not something right about that.

As I wait for him to call me back, I go to my iPad and Google if this is a scam. IT IS.

I tell him that the battery on my cell phone is dying and hang up on him. He keeps trying to call me. My line is busy  because I am calling Burbank Police Department to verify it is scam. The nice calming lady on the other end of the phone line tells me that it is. If they ask for money, it is a scam.

I have worked in local and network news and you would think I would know better, but I did not. Luckily, I figured out before it was too late.

It is very scary to get that call, and you don’t know what you would do in that situation. Especially if you don’t know about. That is the position I was in, and I don’t want any of you to go through that. That is why I am letting you all know about it, so the same thing doesn’t happen to you. Be safe because these people are good, and we just have to be better than them.

Burbank Police Arrest Two After Bike Theft from Backyard

Burbank Police were called to the 1800 N Rose Street after a homeowner walked into his rear yard and witnessed 2 males stealing a couple of bicycles.

The two fled on the bikes and then dropped them and ran through several backyards before getting into car and fleeing.

The witness followed the two through several streets till Burbank Police Officers caught up and finally made a stop of them in the 4300 Block of Jacaranda Street.

One of the males started to disobey officers commands during the stop and the two officers requested additional units to assist in conducting  a Felony stop.

Man Pulls Weapon after Disagreement with Presidential Out Come

Burbank Police were called to Joe’s Bar located at 4311 W. Magnolia Blvd few minutes after 4:00 pm,  regarding a “man with a gun.” 20160114_124626_resized

Voices Against Violence

On Thursday evening Burbank residents gathered at the Burbank Temple Emanu El to discuss violence. Coming on the heels of the Orlando Massacre, Istanbul, San Bernadino, and other almost daily attacks around the world against innocent civilians driven by religious, political, or simply mental illness.

The Voices Against Violence was hosted by Rabbi John Carrier, with additional support by Burbank Mayor Jesse Talamantes and Burbank Police Chief Scott LaChasse.

Attendees were encouraged to voice their thoughts, opinions, concerns, and recommendations throughout the evening on how we, as a community, may be able to approach the topics of violence starting in the home, our schools, and following the continuum to extreme acts of mass murder.

“An act of violence is an outcome of their (those who commit violence) homes. How can you gun down people if you have a good home environment?” asked one attendee.

“Columbine was a new type of thing, now this is almost a routine” voiced another.

The discussions touched on a lot of potential root causes for the current “wave” of violence hitting our communities. Mostly the cause was thought to be a weak home, missing obvious messages from our youth, and as Chief LaChasse advised “sometimes diseases such as schizophrenia only manifest themselves when we are in our mid-20s.”

However, the consensus from the group was that nearly all major incidents in the US have had signals that if identified early enough, and acted on, may have been prevented. It might be a student who becomes silent and withdraws from his social setting, or a significant personality change – there are nearly always signs a person is on the edge, and may be in need of help.

Mayor Talamantes noted that following the Orlando Massacre an event was prevented in Santa Monica, when a resident identified a person acting suspiciously, and called it into the police. “We have to be proactive” when a person or action is clearly out of place, or obviously wrong.

Chief LaChasse also advised the police cannot be everywhere, all of the time. There are approximately 1.5 police officers for every 1000 resident, and the numbers do not favor complete visibility into potential incidents. Thus, residents and those people in the community must be comfortable with the idea of “if you see something, say something.” When this happens, the community becomes a “force multiplier” with the police, increasing our safety and ability to quickly identify and respond to incidents.

Following additional discussion, including an exercise where the group drew on religious guidance on how to deal with violence, theft, and ensuring the safety of self and family, the group engaged in a brainstorming session with the focus on how we, as a community, can help ensure we are able to reduce our exposure to the risk of violence.

Some ideas and thoughts included:

  • We need to get to know each other better, our neighbors and community
  • We cannot be 100% safe, but even 5% assurance is better than 0%
  • Mental illness is a common thread to violence, and we can help those who may be at risk of succumbing to emotional breakdowns, disease, and influence from extreme ideologies or causes which may prey on those who are most at risk and vulnerable
  • The community, including parents of our young people, need better education on the causes and symptoms of violent behavior

And many other ideas.

The meeting ended without having a solid plan for dealing with either domestic violence, or international terrorism. However, the objective of bringing the topic into the community was fulfilled. This will not be the last Voices Against Violence gathering in Burbank, and Rabbi Carrier hopes that for every person who attended the meeting, they will bring 3 or 4 of their family, friends, and neighbors to the next meeting, and continue growing until we can better understand the whys and hows of violence, and begin problem-solving to reduced the risk of violence – and of course improve our quality of life.

Voices Against Violence is a global, loosely organized movement promoting a common vision of community involvement and education in topics related to violence. Although much of the international focus is on domestic violence, in particular violence against women, the scope is rapidly expanding to include all kinds of violence, from school bullying, to domestic abuse, to crimes against women, human trafficking, and ultimately mass act of murder and terrorism.

Burbank Police Foundation Hosts 2nd Annual Awards Luncheon

The Burbank Police Foundation hosted the 2nd Annual Burbank Police Awards Luncheon on Thursday morning at the Pickwick Gardens, honoring police officers, civilian employees, volunteers, and citizens for their “exemplary efforts” in serving our community.

BPD Foundation Awards-6

Michael Hastings President Burbank Police Foundation.

Michael Hastings, President of the Burbank Police Foundation, provided a background for the importance of a close relationship between the community and law enforcement, while painting a broad picture of the personal commitment of the police department in keeping the community safe, and an attractive location for both business and living.

One area resident who participated in the event, Fred Herrman, recently moved to town from the South Bay, and noted that Burbank “is a good place to live, with great police, and a lot to do.” He donates to the Police Foundation every year, because “he really appreciates the job they (BPD) does in keeping this a safe place to live.”

The awards highlighted the courage, commitment, innovative ideas, and citizen contributions to the community. Burbank Police Chief Scott LaChasse noted that in the words of Albert Schweitzer, “the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”

BPD Foundation Awards-7

Police Star Awards L/R Cameron Brown, Cody Roberts, Det. Todd Burke.

July 2015. Officer Todd Burke and Detective Cody Roberts arrived on scene and saw a house that was completely overtaken by smoke. Hearing voices, they immediately went into action, crawling into the house on their stomachs, guiding 3 persons out, including a 90 year old woman. All would have certainly perished had both officers not set personal safety aside, putting the lives of others above their own.

For their bravery and selfless actions, placing the safety of our citizens above their own, officers Burke and Roberts were awarded the Police Star.

BPD Foundation Awards-2

Chief Scott LaChasse and MC Jim Roope.

Jim Roope, a local media personality, provided great narratives behind each award, putting the bravery and accomplishments of each awardee into a very human perspective.

In January 2015, Officer Cameron Brown responded to a house fire near the 7100 block of Landis. Officer Brown learned there may be an elderly woman in the house, and he immediately raced in the burning home to investigate. He found the woman, and quickly brought her to safety.

For his bravery in entering the burning home, with the intent to save a human life, Officer Brown was awarded the Police Star.

Other awards provided a view into the difficulty officers have in dealing with painful, yet very human situations, such as child abuse.

In October 2012, Sergeant Celia Hawver was investigating the tragic death of a 5 week old baby. Suspecting potential child abuse, Sgt. Hawver was determined to bring justice to this poor soul’s life, and death. Using excellent interrogation technique, she was able to bring the baby’s father to confess to the crime, and closure to the tragedy.

BPD Foundation Awards-5

Burbank Command Staff with Professional Esteem Award Recipient Celia Hawver.

For her commitment to bring justice this helpless, lost soul, Sgt. Hawver was awarded a Professional Esteem Award.

Other categories of awards highlighted the actions of citizens, such as the Caamal family, who went nose to nose with a home invasion suspect armed with an assault rifle. Or the police department’s citizen volunteers, including John Kemmerer, who has devoted thousands of hours to the department, or civilian employees of the department, including Crime Analyst Michelle Larson who is well known for her work with crime analytics and statistics, and developing a comprehensive departmental online training system.

Chief LaChasse emphasized that “each award recipient shares a common attribute – selflessness” and a desire to serve their communities.BPD Foundation Awards-3
