Recovery of Stolen Art by Benjamin Crème NR19300ml

LOS ANGELES –Between November 2011 and August 2012, the victim stored artwork valued at approximately $800,000 in a storage facility in the LAPD Pacific Division.

On September 25, 2019, Commercial Crimes detectives received a phone call from the Mission Division about a person who discovered stolen artwork and wanted to turn the artwork over to authorities.

Commercial Crimes detectives responded to the person’s residence in the city of San Fernando where it had been stored for the past few years. The reporting person advised the artwork was previously in possession of a relative who had passed away a few years prior.

The reporting person took the deceased relative’s items out of storage and brought them to their residence. Upon looking through the items from the deceased relative, the person discovered the artwork was stolen after visiting a law enforcement website and immediately notified authorities.

Published

on

SHERMAN OAKS (KABC) — A dog that was stolen from a Sherman Oaks home during a burglary last week has been reunited with her owner.

Stella, a 4-year-old labradoodle, was the most prized possession stolen from Barbara Goodhill’s home last Friday.

“She probably was trusting when they took her,” Goodhill said. “She’s just a bundle of joy and spirit and I guess too friendly for her own good.”

Goodhill went around her neighborhood posting flyers and offering a $500 reward, no questions asked, for Stella’s return.

Tuesday morning, Stella was brought into an Animal Services clinic in Downey by a man who said the dog was following him.Her microchip was scanned and she was reunited with Goodhill. Police still want to talk to two people […]

BEVERLY GROVE (CBSLA) — Residents of a controlled-access Beverly Grove condominium building are hoping the public can help police identify a man who was caught on camera stealing mail from the shared mailboxes.

YG Reports Over $400k in Jewelry Stolen from WeHo’s London Hotel

YG Reports Over $400k in Jewelry Stolen

WEST HOLLYWOOD (TMZ) — YG claims nearly half a million dollars in bling was taken right from under his nose — and cops are on the case.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ … the rapper filed a police report Monday in L.A. for grand theft, telling police over $400,000 in personal jewelry had recently been jacked from his hotel room at the London. And, by “recently,” we mean almost an entire week earlier.

We’re told YG claims sometime between 11 PM on NYE and 11 AM the next morning, a briefcase containing high-priced pieces that had been placed on top of a safe was a little lighter than usual. YG told cops he noticed the missing valuables on Jan. 1 … but for some reason, didn’t get around to making an official report until 5 days later.

No suspects have been identified in the case yet … we’re told YG noted he had people coming in and out of his room that night. Makes sense — it was a big holiday, after all.

That said, our sources say detectives will be looking into possible surveillance footage in and around the area to see if they can spot anything … in addition to their usual investigatory methods.
