GLENDALE — City officials have hired a security guard to monitor parking lots at the Glendale Sports Complex after six vehicle break-ins in the past four months at the park. Personal belongings — such as navigation systems, laptops, cellphones and purses — were stolen from the parked vehicles at the complex at 2200 Fern Lane, Glendale police Sgt. Vahak Mardikian said. Some of the thefts occurred because vehicles weren’t locked and windows were rolled down, giving thieves easy access to valuables, Mardikian said.

Recently I visited Rick Caruso’s newly opened Americana at Brand. I am a graduate student from San Francisco conducting research for my MFA thesis on thematic design; as such, the stunning architecture of Americana was a must-see. After being on the premises for a couple of minutes, I began snapping a few pictures for my research, and was immediately accosted by an albeit friendly security guard who informed me that all student, commercial, industry and entertainment photography must be pre-approved.
