Property crimes in Koreatown continuously increases

April 29, 2016

Property crimes such as burglaries and thefts are on the rise.

According to a crime status report from the LAPD Olympic station, 334 property crime cases were tallied in the past month, from March 27th thru April 23rd.

Out of the total property crime cases, there were 50 burglaries, thefts totaled 83 cases and 145 car larceny cases. Car larceny cases took the highest portion out of all the property crime cases.

During this time, property crime cases increased by 1.5% compared to previous month. Also thefts, car thefts and car larceny increased by 25%, 7.7%, 16% respectively. Only personal thefts cases decreased by 25.9%.

LAPD has continuously urged drivers to take cautions about leaving their personal belongings in the car and it seems to have reduced number of car larceny until last month. Car larceny which takes the biggest portion out of all property crimes increased by 16% in the past month and it has worried police authorities.

The LAPD said the carelessness of LA drivers also contributes to increased car larceny besides the fact that the number of property criminals has increased.

In order to prevent damages from property crimes, LAPD urges drivers that purses, cash, smartphones, and other belongings that are subject to car larceny must not be left in the car. The LAPD advises drivers to put valuable belongings in the trunk, or take it with them as criminals will break window and steal things from car when they see crime of opportunity.

In the meantime, violent crimes in LA Koreatown decreased by 23.3% last month, with 79 cases compared to previous month with 103 cases.
