West Valley Division is experiencing multiple residential burglaries in which the suspects call the victimís residence multiple times. If a resident answers the phone, the suspects hang up and call the next house. Once the suspects locate a home in which the residents donít answer, they smash doors & windows to gain entry to the home. Suspects ransack the victimís homes and take property.
Suspects are targeting homes in the Tarzana and Encino areas, south of the Ventura Blvd.
