Default Welcome to San Pedro !

A new boat owner from The Valley in the marina was going to see about a new job yesterday at 7:00 am. He left the marina when he turned off Harbor Drive uphill around 17th. At the stop sign across the street from the Dalmation American Club a young short tattooed Latino was crossing the street when he made a move and put a 38 Revolver up to his head and said 'Get out of the truck' (mid 70's Chevy beater) He said 'F U your not taking my truck' The 5'2" gangster homie then took his wallet and ran.

This was the 4th time this guy has been carjacked. 2 company plumbing vans taken and once his buddies car was taken he was the passenger. All those were in the Valley and Pacoima.

Word of caution out to boaters in San Pedro/Wilmington/Long Beach


Watch Your Back !

Can we use the deterents NOAA has authorized against these pukes? Or is a shotgun out of the question?

Gee no lack of sympathy here but with bad luck like that maybe he should just give up driving.....

For that matter why didn't he say "F U your not taking my wallet"

What does this have to do with fishing or boating? Crime happens everywhere, including where you live!

The reason of the post is to warn boat owners to be carefull around the port. If your with 1 - 2 or more buddies you won't be such a target. But if your boating solo near the launch ramp you could be a target. This guy thought he moved to a area 'to get away from it all' and start a new lifestyle.

Crime happens everywhere. Yes that is true although some areas have alot more crime than others. Long Beach will have a $1,000,000 + house near Belmont with homeless working the alleys at night, across the river in Seal Beach you will have alot less riff raff.

The Homie was arrested committing a armed robbery in Long Beach the next day.

A retired cop friend had his brother shot and killed during a carjack.
LAPD Harbor Division is in big trouble and is way understaffed.
All you have to do is read the Daily Breeze thursday and you will see.
They average 15 nacotics arrests a week in Pedro. Those druggies need cash.

Boaters going solo I feel are a $ target.
This warning post goes out to those guys.


Alot of talk about Boaters Saftey on AllCoast.
Don't get robbed or killed on your way to go fishing.

The high crime rates & gang violence are just some of the many reasons I moved out of Southern California to the peacefull countryside of Nova Scotia, CANADA!!!!
