Hi Everyone, new to Leimert Park and have noticed in my area ( on Olmsted Between Coliseum & Rodeo) there has been a rash of street lights being out. It is completely dark on entire streets around there in the last day or so.  I made a call to the proper People and found out there has been tampering with the wires inside the street lights or "copper theft" Below is what i was told

BE ON THE LOOKOUT for copper wire thieves. If you see anyone tampering with the street lights before 8 am and after 3 pm, CALL THE POLICE, they will not be city workers! TRY TO GET A LICENSE PLATE NUMBER; AND PHOTOGRAPHS; FOR YOUR SAFETY, DO NOT CONFRONT THESE PEOPLE. The copper wires are located below the sidewalk in a box next to the street light. City workers, after repairs, are now using an epoxy to seal the boxes. IF YOUR STREET LIGHTS GO OUT, CALL 3-1-1 OR STREET LIGHTING DIVISION AT 323-913-4744

The problem is being worked on but it may take some days, Please call 3-1-1 when your street lights suddenly go out so the city is aware of the situation
