Side Mirror Thefts Plague Part of Burbank


On Saturday, January 4, four vehicles with side mirrors stolen were reported to Burbank Police, all relatively close to each other, with two in the hill community and two near the 5 Freeway. Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department commented, “It’s our belief that all four incidents appear to have been conducted by the same individual or group of individuals because of similar type of theft and the close time frame and proximity.”

At 5:30 a.m., a 2014 black Infiniti two-door car was reported as missing its driver side mirror, and the incident is believed to have occurred between 4:30 and 5:30 the morning of January 4.

At 1:00 p.m., both side mirrors were reported taken from a white 2012 BMW 3 series, parked on the 1600 block of Victory Pl. near the Burbank Empire Center, and the theft is reported to have happened between 11:50 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

Later that afternoon, two more thefts were reported. Sometime overnight form January 3 until when the owner checked his vehicle at 2:30 p.m. pm January 4, the driver side mirror from a 2008 black BMW X5 was taken while parked on the 1900 block of Amber Lane.

Sometime between 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m., when the theft was discovered, both side mirrors were taken from a 2007 black BMW 3 series on the 1500 block of Victory Place.

Each side mirror costs $300 and can be easily removed from the side mirror housing. There were no damages to the vehicles reported, just the missing side mirror glasses. There are no suspects at this time.
