Advisory

#crime_trending LAPD 77th Street

THE CRIME TREND:
Catalytic converters are being targeted by thieves. Toyota Tacoma’s and SUV’s and Honda Element’s seem to be of particular interest to the thieves. Other vehicles are being targeted by thieves for personal items left in plain view on the seats or floorboards of the cars.

THE AREA MOST AFFECTED:
All areas of the Division have been affected by this trend.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Try to park your car under a street lamp, in your driveway or inside of a garage if you have access to one. Engrave your car license plate number onto the catalytic converter to make it traceable. Most importantly, avoid parking your car on parts of the street that are darker or overgrown with foliage.

Call the police immediately if you see someone tampering with your car or you witness any other suspicious activity.
