From 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 8, until 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, February 9, an unknown suspect entered the unlocked side door of a garage on the 1300 block of N. Lamer St. and took a set of golf clubs.
While violent Part One crimes such as murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault are down, property crimes such as arson, burglary, theft and vehicle theft “remain a concern of the department,” according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.
“We’re hoping for stronger involvement by people in protecting their homes and vehicles and by being good witnesses and observant of their surroundings. In turn, this will help reduce the opportunity for property crimes and theft,” Ryburn said.
