2. LAPD ALERT – PURSE THEFTS
There has been a rash of purse thefts in the West LA area, including Westwood Village.
These incidents typically occur in upscale restaurants, with female diners positioning their purses on the back of their chairs or adjacent chairs. Suspects target their victims, often carrying jackets in their hands, placing the jacket over the victims’ purse, concealing and removing the purse.
Suspects usually head to retail venue and make purchases (often gift cards) with victim’s credit cards before the theft is discovered. For more information, please click here: 08150804-3CCtheftpurse
