Jesus Sanchez caught Echo Park and LA City Councilman Eric Garcetti last night at a community meeting. While talking about crime statistics, he said "I had a wallet stolen from my car. I think it was Tweaker Tom. We actually saw three people with flash lights going down the street." Oops! Remember the LAPD's marketing campaign (at least this is how it is in the Valley): "Leave it and Lose It."
