    When are the residents of west Hollywood going to learn not to leave valuables in the back seats of their vehicles even for a few minutes? It’s just pure stupidity, nothing less.

    And when is this Crime Blotter ever going to put descriptions of the suspects? If the Sheriffs aren’t providing it, would you kindly ask them to? We’d at least have a better chance of helping the Sheriffs apprehending the suspects if we knew what to look for.
