too bad it did not happen in Elsegundo those cops would have been all over it. They would have taken 5 units to investigate and go after those bad teenagers Elsegundo cops have nothing better to do

I thought we learned that if nuisance crimes are not pursued and prosecuted they lead to major crimes.

Personally I would have just kept my urine specimen in a beer bottle in my frig.

How disgusting is this? This homeowner takes prima facie evidence of a crime to the local police department and they blow him off. The Redondo Beach PD did the same thing to me several years ago. The thief was never jailed and my stolen property was never recovered. Our taxes pay the police to protection our lives, AND our property. Looks like some of us are just not worth their time and effort, but they sure are good at hiding along PCH with radar guns and giving speeding tickets all morning.

How stupid do you have to be to keep that much beer outside where kids can get it. You have actually created a dangerous condition. You are the one that should have been arrested. Have you heard of the legal terms attractive nuisance and entrapment. When I was their age I would have likely taken all your beer and come back later to pee on your doorstep, ring your doorbell and run. All to watch you slip on the pee. Kids do stupid things and don't need adults helping them to do more stupid things. Consider a padlock on that fridge at least.

Hang the little bassssssturds. You mean to tell me on my own private property these little punks can come in and steal my beer and I can get blamed for it? Bullpuckey. I would have set up some traps to cause bodily harm to the varmits. I can't believe the police didn't do anything. First your beer, then your wife, then your house and all of your treasures. What happens to people that steal beer from liquor stores? And people ask why these kids go on to bigger and harcher crimes. Hang 'em. It isn't just a kid thing, it is stealing. STEALING !!!A Thief is a thief there is no excuses for it. If it were my beer they wouldn't be doing it again, I can tell you that for sure.

completely understand both sides of the fence - we pay tax money and the police ignores it. Yet, if the victim knew one of the culprits - they should have gone to him or their parents. they needed to be just as responsible - i mean it was just beer. not like leaving his garage door open to steal his toolbelt.

I bet they did just that.

No need for this to go through the courts, just beat the kid and make him pay his bar tab.

"Detective Mike Gaglia said the department likely will not investigate the thefts, preferring to concentrate on larger crimes."

Too busy to arrest prowlers and daytime residential burglars, even when there's video evidence? What, all the homicides in HB are taking up all their resources?

“Preferring to concentrate on larger crimes” there is no such thing as a half way crook I’m sure the kids are doing more crimes.

Reminds me of some years ago when a friend of some friends of mine popped to the door. Visited a short bit and then he asked to use the bathroom. Found out after he left he had ducked into the kitchen and chugged down 2 bottles of beer.

I think Peter's lucky he got off with just a warning to lock up his stuff and he didn't get charged with contributing to the delinquency of a minor(s)! Wouldn't that have been a sick twist of fate?

I agree with Kidding, if this happened in El Segundo, the sirens would be blaring, they would have the kids on the curb with cuffs on, 5 cop cars plus detectives to investigate.

Good for El Segundo police. That is what should be done. Scare the bejeeezus out of them. All of the parents should be in on this one. I want to slap them and it wasn't even my beer.

His plan to lock up the beer at NIGHT will not work if the thefts occur during the DAY.

From the article:

"Everything now is completely locked up at NIGHT," he said.

"They were very brazen. They'd come during the DAY..."

How did the the kids find out there was beer in the fridge in the first place? Probably from one of Pete's free loading friends, maybe the kid's dad. It was free wasn't it? So he/they passed it around.
