Great job getting this news published quickly. I've lived here for 30 years and never seen more police in a three square block area -- K9 car, roadblock on Whittier, police helicopter overhead and at least six police cars. Makes me feel like I live in a safe area. Good to know that it's only larceny. McLean Patch was the only place that I could find any news on this.
