Calabasas Area Continues Disturbing Trend that Hit Malibu – Homes Being Burglarized A Second Time

Last week, bestselling crime author and Calabasas resident Lee Goldberg, shared footage media outlets of intruders on his property in what looked like an attempt at a home invasion until the suspects saw Goldberg on the phone – that phone call turned out to be law enforcement.

Goldberg’s neighbor had just been burglarized before Thursday’s thwarted home invasion. The neighbor, who did not want to be identified, told KTLA that thieves broke through a window and got away with thousands of dollars worth of clothes and jewelry.

He added that his house has been hit once before and it’s making him consider moving from the area.

“We live in a gated community and it gives you this false sense of security,” Goldberg said, adding that he thinks thieves go through a nearby golf course and hike up hills to get into homes. “I think all you can do is try and be vigilant. I’m just glad I didn’t go outside and confront them, that was my instinct.”

Malibu Daily News has recently reported a significant uptick in burglarized homes in Malibu with the hardest hit areas being Point Dume and Malibu Country Estates where one homeowner was also hit twice, as the Calabasas resident, the second time thieves disengaged security cameras as not to be identified and entered through a small bathroom window.

That same strategy, including cutting power, was used twice within the last month on Point Dume.

Additionally, smash and grab robberies at high-end designer stores such as Gucci and Louis Vuitton have been rampant in LA County as thieves target luxury goods making affluent areas like Malibu and Calabasas prime targets for home invasions and burglaries.

Thieves caught on camera after the smash and grab at Gucci in Century City on July 31st.
