Resident’s Report: We have become yet another victim of the crime ridden streets of Venice. Last night some one /or group broke into our home on the canals. They stole bicycles, wallets ,cash ,credit cards, and other personal items. All this happened while we were on the second floor sleeping. The police were very prompt and courteous when they spoke with my wife CJ this am. The police opined that the the crooks got in via a doggie door. They suggested they may have come from the Ballona Wetlands. The police in my opinion are doing the best they can with the resources they have.

Note: This is what the police call a“Hot Prowl” crime, where the residents are in the home during the crime. Very dangerous.

VENICE (CBSLA)– A man was shot in the chest with a pellet gun while confronting two burglars at his Venice home early Tuesday morning.

The incident occurred at approximately 3 a.m. in the 2400 blockat the southeast corner of Grand Canal and Linnie Canal.

At about 3 a.m., the homeowner was awakened by the sound of a glass door being shattered. The homeowner, Mark Woodcock, told CBS2 he came out onto his balcony to find two burglars attempting to break into his home. Woodcock said that he shouted at them to get out. At that point, one of them raised his arm and shot Woodcock in the chest with a pellet gun. The suspects then broke into the home, stole cash and fled on foot.

“I shouldn’t have gone out onto the balcony,” Woodcock told CBS2. “It could have been a normal gun, and I could have been in intensive care now… I feel lucky.” Woodcock was treated at the scene and did not require transport to a hospital. There was no immediate description of the suspects. Los Angeles police are investigating. Additional information: Security Systems Services were notified and will increase patrols at night and early morning.

Resident’s Report: "I had an attempted break-in last night. Just before midnight some one came in through the gate, opened a canal-side screen door and jiggled the door knob. At this point I was able to make it to the door and move the curtain aside to scare him off. He must have heard my movements because I only saw his backside leaving the gate. He was slim build, wearing a navy blue hoody, hood up and looked to have a short bladed knife in one hand. There were lights on inside and outside my house so I'm surprised that he chose my house to target. Thanks for keeping us all informed!"

10-26-16 Night 29XX Grand Canal - Grand Canl Ct. Car Break In Resident’s Report

One more incident to report from last night, sadly! 29XX Grand Canal experienced a car break-in as well. They accidentally left their car door unlocked and the robbers rummaged through the inside of the car, stole some chargers and then left the trunk open afterwards.


10-27-16 Midnight 2XX Sherman Canal - Court B Burglary 161426637

I wanted to let you know at midnight somebody entered my home through the garage that was undoubtedly left open. (by my houseguest/ dog sitter). They stole many of the contents from his car (including his wallet and keys). They entered my home and I am uncertain what was taken as I am out of town. Several cabinets and drawers were ajar in my family room and kitchen. My dog started barking and it seems that they ran out. The police are on their way.


10-26-16 11:17 p.m. Eastern Canal Entered Vehicle, No Theft Resident’s Report

Last night at 11:17 pm, 3 young men (16-20 yrs old) were checking cars to see if they were open. My car happened to be open and they ransacked my car looking for anything of value. I caught it all on tape. I called the pacific division, but because they didn't take anything of value they weren't interested in taking a report. Please tell the canal residents to keep their car doors locked and not to keep anything of value in their car. Also, I think it's wise not to have your garage door programmed into your car. all they have to do is break your car window and they can get into your garage.

08-15-16 6:45 p.m. 4XX Howland Canal - Court B Robbery 161421510

Neighbor's Report:At 9:30 pm on Monday night, August 15,I was called to the home of my new next door neighbor who had just moved in 2 days ago. Her house was robbed sometime during the day while she was at work. The precise time is unknown. She had just come home at 9:00 p.m. to find the front door unlocked and her house ransacked; a computer, some cash and other items were stolen along with a set of spare keys to the house. The thief/thieves entered through an unlocked, small rectangular window at the alley side (back of the house). The robber(s) apparently left the house through the front door because it was unlocked. The window is not visible from the alley so they may have gone into the property itself to see if any windows or doors were unlocked. She is shaken and perturbed. Police called and they came to investigate, take pictures and dust for prints, etc…

It is extremely important that everyone who keep their windows open during these hot summer months remember to close and securely lock their windows and doors when they leave the house. Information provided by Venice Canals Neighborhood Watch.

chair

Resident’s Report: We live on 23XX grand canal/strongs drive and are saddened as our beloved hanging garden chair was stolen Monday night. It is very heavy so two people and a van or pick-up truck must have been involved. They cut through the rope and carried it off... Feeling somewhat violated as I always felt so safe in the canals somehow.

He came out of his car and was pushed against a wall at gunpoint and asked for his wallet. After mugging him, they asked where he lived. He said out of town.

Resident’s Report: "Last night about 45 minutes after you [friends] left, some young man came stumbling up to us. He was hollering call 911, call nine one one, then fell over in our driveway! He was being chased by apparent gang members who earlier down the court towards the Grand Canal had beaten him up. He got away and they chased him into our laps!When they saw us, theyturned and ran the other way. Supposedly, they hit him over the head with a skate board or two. He started drinking with them on the beach and somehow became separated from the rest of a group, including his friend. We never did call 911 as he was drunk and asked us not too. As it turned out he called his friendwho picked him up about 10 minutes later in his car and off they went. He was scratched, bruised but not bleeding. You got to have one of these now and again to remind you that these can be mean streets…..” [Account edited].

Resident's Report: This morning at around 5:30 am, my car was broken into and a few items were taken. Unfortunately, I do not think my car was locked, although I thought it was. I have filed a police report. My camera caught the thief in action but please note that the date and time is off by 25 hours, so the date and time should read 2/24 5:25am. The person’s jacket and shirt are very identifiable. Since he tried to open the door of my husband’s car, he may have worked his way around the street.
