A series of vehicle burglaries in the Manhattan Beach area recently have prompted local authorities to caution shoppers at the Apple Store at the Manhattan Beach Village Mall to not leave their purchases in their vehicles after leaving the store. Since September police have determined that the burglars have watched customers exiting the store with new computers and then seized the opportunity to break in to the vehicles once drivers have left the Mall and driven to other locations and left the computer unattended in the parked car. The Manhattan Beach PD is working on solving these crimes, and are reminding shoppers not to leave pricey goods unattended in cars, no matter how far from the place of purchase you go or if the vehicle is locked.
