Los Angeles police are warning residents in Toluca Lake to watch for unexpected visitors after a few residential burglaries and attempted burglaries in the area.
During one, a resident pointed a gun to scare off a would-be burglar who first knocked on the front door and then forced open a back window, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Two burglaries occurred in houses that are under construction and tools were stolen.
In a Facebook post on its North Hollywood page, the LAPD encouraged residents to be cautious when an unexpected visitor comes to the door.
