Keeping the Burglars at Bay

Burglaries have spiked this summer in Silver Lake, Echo Park and Los Feliz. Protect yourself with some sensible strategies.


Earlier this summer Silver Lake residents worried

Late last week, Los Feliz learned of between Riverside Drive and Griffith Park Boulevard.

Summer is tempting time for this kind of crime, with people away on trips. Even if they are home, they're leaving windows and doors open to beat the heat.

The National Association of Realtors' blog Houselogic has some great tips on how beating the burlgars.

Our favorite was this: "If you want to sell high-ticket items to strangers...meet at the parking lot of your local police station."

There are nine others--with humorous commentary written from an imaginary burglar's point-of-view.
