Only Two Vehicle Burglaries Reported Last Week in WeHo –a Major Decline

Last week was another one that was relatively light when it came to serious crime in West Hollywood. Only two vehicle burglaries were reported, a dramatic decline from the number in recent weeks that may reflect the impact of an arrest on Sept. 27 of a man and woman suspected of involvement in a large number of such burglaries.
