Westside residents hit by string of automobile burglaries


A series of window-shattering automobile burglaries in Brentwood and Marina Del Rey have many residents in the world wondering if it is likely to be the identical thief or thieves committing the crimes.  

Barns Lau and Jas Singh live several miles apart, but each were victims of automobile burglaries overnight. Singh, a resident of Brentwood parked her Mercedes outside her apartment on Federal Avenue, near Wilshire, around midnight.  

“I get up like normal Monday at like 5:30 a.m. and go to work at 6 a.m. I’m walking to my automobile, and I realize the door was open,” she told KTLA’s Omar Lewis.

The Brentwood resident said she then realized other cars on the road had also been broken into. 

“You’ll be able to actually see the paths of glass over 10 cars perhaps,” she added.

Lau’s Lexus was parked near his home on Lincoln Boulevard and 85th Street in Marina Del Rey.  

“A complete string of cars got broken into, about five cars on the road,” he told KTLA.  

All of Lau’s scuba diving gear was stolen, together with a motorcycle and a debit card.  

“It makes my blood boil,” he said.
