Stolen Gardeners' Trucks Trend in West LA
A trend occurring this year in West Los Angeles, especially the Brentwood, Pacific Palisades, and Century City areas, is gardeners' trucks being stolen. The unknown suspect(s) take the unattended vehicle while the gardeners are in the backyard. The suspects often drive the vehicle two to four blocks away, take all the gardening equipment, then abandon the vehicle.
If you have a gardener or know someone in this area that does, please advise the gardener of the trend and have them lockk & secure their vehicle. Do not leave the keys in the ignition or on the driver's seat. The trucks are often taken from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
If you or the gardeners see unusual activity, please call 877-ASK-LAPD or 911.
