Los Angeles police detectives are looking for information about a home burglary in the 3300 block of Woodcliff Road that occurred last Thursday between 5:30 p.m. and 11:30 p.m.
Investigators say a large amount of currency, surveillance equipment and several tuxedos were taken.
In a crime alert issued by the LAPD's Van Nuys Division, police say the residence was entered through the backyard where the gate was unlocked, and a rear glass door was smashed.
The house alarm was disabled, the alert noted. After robbing the home, the burglar or burglars left through the front door, according to the police report.
Detectives are asking people in the neighborhood if they noticed any unusual activity on Thursday during the hours in question. Anyone with information should contact Detective Diamond, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Detective Krauss, email@example.com.
The LAPD adds this to the alert: Please remember that we should not drop our guard, but remain vigilant and aware of our surroundings, our own properties as well as those of our neighbors and friends. Together, we will make an impact on quality of life issues and reduce crime and the fear of crime in our communities.
