Approximately $36,000 in jewelry and more than $4,000 in electronics were stolen from a home on Magnolia Boulevard last week, police said. A camcorder and laptop were among the items missing, and it's possible entry was made when a bathroom window screen was removed, Burbank Police Officer Joshua Kendrick said. He added the resident said the window was open, and police believe that was how entry and exit was made. There were no signs of forced entry, Kendrick said.

A series of commercial burglaries last week on South Victory Boulevard that resulted in the loss of thousands of dollars worth of equipment may be connected, police say. Three burglaries from facilities in a building on the 800 block of the street resulted in stolen music and production gear overnight May 24. Doors to the business were pried open, police said, though an alarm for one of the businesses apparently drove the intruders away. Another business on the 100 block of South Victory Boulevard was burglarized May 28 in a similar manner — a window was smashed before the door was pried open — prompting Burbank police to issue a crime alert Tuesday afternoon.

DOWNTOWN — Crime in Burbank dropped 8% in 2009, mirroring a slide across Los Angeles County despite escalating unemployment and a sluggish economy, according to year-end figures released Monday by the Police Department. The number of homicides dropped from two in 2008 to one last year, according to the department’s FBI uniform crime report. Interim Burbank Police Chief Scott LaChasse, a 32-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, attributed declines across the region in part to “hardening the target,” the law enforcement tactic of beefing up security to minimize the risk of an attack or theft.
