Two more BMWs were reported with stolen side mirrors on January 4 and 5. Burbank PD is treating these two cases as related to the other four incidents of stolen side mirror glass reported on January 4, as first published in this myBurbank story.
Overnight from 10:00 p.m. January 3 to January 4, when it was reported at 7:00 a.m., both side mirror glasses were taken from a white BMW X3 on the 1600 block of Keeler Street.
Although, not reported until January 5 at 10:30 a.m., a separate reported theft on the 800 block of E. Walnut Ave. could have occurred on January 4, as that day is included in the possible time frame. In that instance, the driver side mirror from a 2011 silver BMW 3 Series was reported as stolen.
No other damage to the vehicles was reported, according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department. “These mirrors are easy to steal and sell and cost $300 each to replace.”
Burbank Police are considering the recent rash of side mirror thefts to be related and perpetrated by the same individual or group of individuals.
