We had a break-in to our VW Golf in San Gabriel the night of February 14. The intruder threw a huge rock/boulder through the passenger window. Stolen: IPod and several hundred dollars worth of clothes which were headed to the dry cleaner. 700 block of N Mission Drive.

Sorry - the San Gabriel car break in was in 300 block of N Mission Drive - not 700 block.

I'm sorry to hear that, MJ - thanks for posting, as that incident was not in the week's crime summary. Did you report it?

My escalade was stolen on feb 15 from via arbolada. S.P. police informed me before I even knew about it! Thank you to the officers that stayed with the vehicle where it was found in el sereno. I too had clothes that needed to go to the cleaners but thankfully it was still there! What police told me , was that they leave the car for 2 days to see if it has on- star and if the vehicle's still there, then they strip it. I was very lucky.

I don't leave a dang thing in my car, I park in a parking lot all night, no garage. Never had a break in since I started driving in 1980.
