Whittier Area Skate Shops Beware: Hoodlums on the Loose

Transworld Business is reporting that a series of smash-and-grab burglaries has struck skate shops located in the Whittier/La Habra area over the last week. The shops, Board Room in Garden Grove, Division in La Habra, and Two Felons in Whittier, are all locally-owned, and some have been hit more than once. Transworld goes so far as to call the affected shops “crippled.” Which illuminates something that I’ve never understood about petty criminals: why do you insist on damaging individuals in your own communities? If you’ve absolutely got to steal some skateboards, go break into a god damned Quiksilver Youth or something.
