Stolen VehiclesPacific Palisades

Between February 13 and 16, three stolen vehicles were reported in Pacific Palisades, according to Senior Lead Officer Michael Moore.

Two cars were stolen from the victims’ driveways and one was taken from the street.

“Detectives have noticed that, in most cases, vehicles are stolen because the key fob has been left inside the car,” Moore warned. “Please make sure you are not leaving key fobs anywhere near your vehicle.”
