Glenoaks Village is a busy neighborhood center…
That’s faithfully served the Sylmar community for over 30 years.
Crime has rarely been an issue in Sylmar, a normally quiet, largely middle-class locale tucked away in the Northeast corner of San Fernando Valley.
And neither crime nor vandalism has EVER been an issue at Glenoaks Village.
Until recently that is…
Two perpetrators have unfortunately targeted the shopping center for vandalism and theft. On repeated occasions, the pair has smashed storefront windows, ripped out surveillance cameras, committed petty theft, and vandalized the site, doing a great deal of property damage.
Frustrated with the situation, CBM Property Manager, Claudia Witt, took action. She contacted the news department at local television station, KTLA, and reported the ongoing vandalism. As a result, KTLA News broadcast a segment highlighting the events at Glenoaks Village, and asking for community help in identifying and apprehending the assailants.

In addition to lobbying for community help to identify the perpetrators, Ms. Witt noted plans to “add more security” and “lockdown the center, immediately.” The landlord also shared his concern for the mostly “mom & pop” tenants who bear the brunt of property damage and theft committed at their stores.
If you vandalize or steal from a property CBM manages, we fight back!
