An alert to people living in northeast Echo Park: my roommates laptop was stolen out of his room yesterday. It probably happened sometime in the early afternoon while me and another one of my roommates were at home. However, we didn’t hear anything as we live two floors above him.
He accidentally left his window unlocked which is street-level and is just a few steps away from the sidewalk. We’re assuming that the thief just opened up his window and grabbed whatever he could find close by which would have been his laptop (oh, and a jar of change). It was most likely someone looking to make some quick cash or just wanting to have a little “fun.”
Learn from our mistake, and don’t forget to lock your windows as well as your doors. And beware of anyone loitering or snooping around. And, of course, the non-emergency police phone number for Echo Park is 1-877-275-5273
