Burglary incidents in La Cañada Flintridge declined for the second straight month in July, with the four burglaries reported in July representing the lowest monthly count of 2012. Crescenta Valley Sheriff's Station Capt. David Silversparre told the La Cañada Flintridge City Council on Tuesday that part of the reason for the drop from 19 burglaries in May to seven in June, and then four last month, is that residents are calling in with information that allows deputies to catch suspects in the act. On July 24, a resident alerted deputies that a car full of suspicious-looking men was parked near Commonwealth and Berkshire avenues, leading deputies to interview the people in the car and later arrest a man, Sergio Hernandez, 22, of Los Angeles, who was hiding in the bushes.

A word to our wise La Cañada Flintridge citizens: Keep your doors and windows locked, your eyes open and your valuables well hidden. Burglars are invading our turf, and they've been particularly active this month. Of course, that's nothing new. We've seen spikes in our crime statistics before. Most recently, there was some cause for alarm in November, when we had numerous break-ins. In January, burglars struck six times in La Cañada. But that's six times in 31 days - not really an awful record, as painful as it must have been for the victims.

Letters to the Editor Living With Wildlife If you plan to move up to the mountains, please don't bore your neighbors with complaints of the snow during the winter. If you choose to live in the desert, please keep your displeasure with the heat to yourself. You'll just sound like a fool. With this in mind, please don't move to La Cañada and complain about the beautiful wildlife that's endemic to this community and is indeed one of the many things that make this such a unique and wonderful place to live.

Overall, crime is down from last year?s statistics, but burglary is up in La Cañada Flintridge, according to information provided by Crescenta Valley Sheriff?s Capt. Dave Silversparre during Tuesday night?s meeting of the City Council. As in past reports from local law enforcement, Silversparre reinforced what is becoming a too-often ignored theme: lock your house and car doors and don?t leave valuable items visible in vacant vehicles. ?Try not to be a victim,? Silversparre said, adding that the increase in property crimes has led to his department adding extra patrols, both uniform and undercover, and working with other agencies in surrounding areas.
