Two Residential Burglaries Reported In Apartment Complexes

By On March 10, 2014

Two daytime residential burglaries were reported from apartment complexes in the City recently.

On March 6, between 10:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., an apartment on the ground floor of a complex on the 200 block of W. Verdugo was entered by unknown suspects. Two digital cameras, a Canon worth $1000 and a Nikon worth $200, a lens worth $800 and miscellaneous jewellery were taken.

Entry is thought to have been made through an unlocked window with a broken latch next to a walkway on the east side of the complex.

Between noon and 4:30 pm. on March 7, prescription medications were taken from a downstairs apartment on the 400 block of E. Tujunga. When the victim returned home, he noticed the interior was ransacked and believed the suspects possibly still inside, so he called police.

Burbank Police searched the apartment but found no suspects. The residence, however, had been gone through and items were moved and strewn about, including jewelry and an iPod, which were not taken. Three prescriptions for Xanax, Vicodin and Oxycontin were reported stolen.

Entry is believed to have been made via an unlocked window by the front door. The window’s screen had been removed.
