WeHo jewelry store burglarized over weekend

The L.A. Sheriff’s Department is investigating the burglary of about $25,000 worth of inventory at Georgiano Fine Jewelry and Watches in West Hollywood.

Security camera footage captured a male suspect break into the business through the front door using a crowbar at around 6 a.m. Sunday.

The store’s owners told Fox 11 that items such a personalized wedding ring were taken, and they complained about the Sheriff Department’s 18-minute response time.

If anyone recognizes the burglary suspect they can call the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station or “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or online.

who cares? they must have been insured. The first person to be investigated should be the owner of the store. just be glad no one was hurt, if in fact this was a true robbery. people think weho should be a crime free utopia. It’s nothing more than an area of los angeles with county services. Weho is not a real city, it’s a state of mind. when you have an area of LA with a facade of an independent city run by outside forces, you’re not going to have much say in how it’s run. the “leaders” and residents… Read more »

I care. Weho is a real city and ideally it would be crime free.

You support crime and root for the burglar?
Send me your address and I’ll come loot your house.
You probably have insurance…

The owner should sleep in the store with an AR-15 and give each burglar a few rounds of 5.56 MM Nato as a consolation prize.

Eric is right, how could you know that is staged BY THE OWNERS of the business to get insurance money?

WHO is jut any other city not big deal about it. Life is risky.

Oh I so can’t resist saying this, we have a case of an older white male committing a serious theft in a city where older white males claim that young Blacks are the ONLY people committing crimes❗ Are we now going to have comments claiming this is all part of a vast ANTIFA conspiracy to make conservative older white males look bad❓

Lol dude. 99% of the time they don’t even include a description. Why? Because people like you get super triggered at the (correct) implication that minorities are over represented in violent crime stats.

For every one old white dude robbing a store at night, you have 15 teen minorities smashing up The Grove.

You’re welcome.

If ONLY oppressed people of color like myself were so influential as to affect public policy on that level❗🤣

You’re right. 90% of crime comes from people other than whites, but the left hates the truth. Don’t upset the snowflakes.

Right-wing reactionaries can repeat that lie as much as you want, the corporate media really likes that kind of misinformation but, no matter how many times you repeat that nonsense it WON’T make it true. White people accounted for 60% of U.S. Crime. Do consider that whites have a system working in their favor as opposed to nonwhites. Note that whites are overrepresented to a statistically significant degree among offenders involved in rape or sexual assault

This guy has been “robbed” a few times before. Sounds like an insurance payout.

Jesus Christ. How inept is the LASD?! Are they really that busy at 6am on a Sunday?

Clearly, you have received some misinformation regarding what goes on during a Sunday morning in West Hollywood while you’re sleeping in. In fact, I reported an incident that happened early Sunday morning several weeks ago. I decided to go to the station myself the following Monday, and they said they were extremely busy despite help from local volunteers. Why don’t you go volunteer and suggest some ways they can improve their response time?

What does this even mean? Volunteers? Doing what exactly?

LASD is a joke.

That’s right, your fellow citizens volunteer to help make our community safer, creating a better relationship between law enforcement and the community. The ones that I saw were helping with admin work, such answering phones, but I know some volunteers do more than that. If LASD is such a joke, I’m sure they would love to hear your ideas as a volunteer. It might give you some insight into what is actually going on in this community.

The LASD with should be able to quickly respond to a jewelry burglary without volunteers.

Since you’re an expert in law enforcement operations, can you walk us through the process and procedures of when the Sheriff responds to an incident like this?

Weho is known for the delayed responses by Sheriff deputies. Just another reason for the rise in crime here.

So then it’s totally not a good idea to defund the sheriffs department and cut the number of deputies because that would just be insane and make matters worse.

ABSOLUTELY. Urth Cafe is a parking lot for Lambos, Bentleys, Ferraris, Escalades, etc. And basically a Cars & Coffee for the WH Sheriffs. Ripping rubber up and down Melrose, up and down the West Streets and NOTHING. WHCC is a joke. We need foot patrol, more cruisers. The heiress to the defunct LA Times needs an awakening or needs to go. This is BS. Georgiano has been here for years and this is the thanks the get for no policing? BS. 18 minutes? Why? This isn’t Manhattan!!!!!
