Earlier today helicopters hovered over the Rancho Park blocks west of Westwood Blvd. and south of Exposition and police closed off several streets looking for someone suspected of breaking into a Veteran Ave home.
Today's incident marks the second burglary on this block since last Monday. Not including these, NBC 4 news recently reported that there had been half a dozen area burglaries since December 30. They do however say that these numbers are down from the previous month.
The news report also says police have increased enforcement and patrols. Captain Evangelyn Nathan of the West Los Angeles Community Police Station recommends keeping lights on, alarms set, and even turning on a television or radio if you will be out of your home.
Here are some additional tips from lead officer Rashid Sharif from the LAPD's West LA Division.
