Please be advised that on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, Gallery Lofts suffered a rash of vehicle break-ins in the garage. We have video footage of some of the robberies in action, and the parties involved have access to the this data to share with the police.
We are asking residents to be vigilant and to please take special care to make sure to lock your car doors and roll up your windows tightly. Please do not leave valuables in your car or in plain sight. Also make sure that your home is securely locked before leaving, you are not leaving valuable items in plain view or storing your bicycles on your patios and that you report any suspicious activity to the police immediately.
It was also discovered that the culprit walked through the front pedestrian gate as someone left. If allowable please be sure the gate closes before you walk away.
The Board and Management are moving forward with the items discussed at the Town Hall Meeting on September 15th as part of our comprehensive review of security after consulting with LAPD and Universal Protection Services. These steps consist of improving the video system including possible real time monitoring, redesigning the front gates so as to better protect us from intrusion, and looking into hiring on-site security. More details will follow on all these items.
We sincerely appreciate your cooperation with this serious matter and if you should have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Management at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your assistance with keeping the community in a first class condition.
On behalf of the Gallery Lofts Board of Directors
