Recently we have had several reports of catalytic converters stolen from vehicles. This has primarily been reported at area apartment complexes and during the night time hours. Please report any suspicious person or people and have officers come out and check. We would rather respond to nothing than not be called for something.

So...this happened.... If you chose to caption this photo...please be nice!! Officer Bortel helped rescue a lost pet pig. A very kind lady agreed to keep him/her until the owner can be located or until Animal Control can retrieve this little piggy who tried to go to market!

Great job Universal City PD and Live Oak PD!

12/28/2020

Have you heard of "Bank Jugging" or "Jugging"? A "jugging" is when an offender sits at a bank and watches for patrons to leave with money bags, or what they believe may be money bags, cashed checks, etc.

The offender will follow the victim from the bank to the victim's next destination. This could be home, the grocery store, etc. After the victim stops and leaves the vehicle, the offender will break a window to get into the vehicle and search for, and often steal, the money just picked up from the bank.

In the past couple of months we have had 2 incidents of "jugging" here in Universal City.

Please be mindful of where you are, if anyone is following you, don't leave the money (or any valuables) in the vehicle, and call police if you suspect you are being followed. Even better, call police and then drive to the PD. If the offender does follow you, they will probably not stop at the PD!

Be alert! Stay safe!!

Some folks have been getting phone calls from someone identifying himself as Lt. Bellamy and asking for warrant payments for Universal City PD warrants. While we do use a collection agency to collect payments, you will not get a call from anyone called "Lt. Bellamy". If you receive a call like this, don't hesitate to call UCPD to verify before you make any payments.

REMEMBER!! LOCK YOUR CAR DOORS!!

We are seeing a lot of vehicle burglaries again in Universal City for vehicles that have been left unlocked.

In one case, the garage door opener was inside the vehicle so the suspect was able to get into the garage as well.

Remember, if they can get in your garage, there are usually tools that allow them to break into the house as well.

Don't leave your garage door openers inside your vehicles!

Stay safe!
