Last Week Was a Light One for Crime in West Hollywood

Two thefts from stores and five vehicle burglaries – last week was a light one for crime in West Hollywood. Following is the weekly report by the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station of serious crimes that took place in WeHo from Aug. 20 through Aug. 26. It lists only Part 1 or serious crimes and not misdemeanors.

In a change from previous policy, the Sheriff’s Station has omitted the financial impact of the crimes. The Sheriff’s Station is hoping that by not citing the value of items stolen from parked cars, car thieves will be less likely to break into vehicles. Whether or not that is successful will be determined in coming weeks.
