In the past few days, multiple residential burglaries have been reported throughout Burbank, with items stolen from vehicles parked in secured underground parking structures by unknown suspects. Once an alleged thief enters a secured parking area, police consider the crime a burglary (more serious than a theft) from a residence, because the parking structure is gated or locked.
On December 27 at 3:00 p.m., two victims reported items stolen from a gated parking garage on the 200 block of W. Tujunga Ave. A children’s bicycle, CD player/car stereo and garage door opener were taken from an unlocked white 4-door Isuzu. A separate individual reported a 26″ purple mountain bike that had been locked and chained to a pole also missing.
On December 29, two locked vehicles in an underground parking garage on the 200 block of N. Valley St. were also broken into, but without signs of forced entry. Thieves stole a garage door opener, GPS, glasses, CDs, loose change and sneakers from a 2003 black Honda Accord and a 2009 white Toyota Corolla.
No further information is available at this time, according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.
