Burglars Target Same Drone Store Four Times

Burglars have made off with tens of thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from the same drone store in Studio City.

Drones Plus manager Justin Henderson said the most recent heist happened around 2 a.m. on Saturday. He said the thieves removed a window pane, busted through an inventory cage inside the store, and did it all with what appears to be professional burglary equipment and tactics.

Store surveillance footage shows the thieves knocking stuff over, inside the cage.

They got away with about $5,000 worth of equipment, including highly valuable drones. This comes less than a week after the last time burglars hit the store.

That time, they got away with $35,000 in merchandise. Henderson had some choice words to describe the people who keep robbing him.

"We moved to Studio City because of the idea of safety," he said. "And, you know, obviously, being hit four times... does that mean it's a myth? I guess so. I don't know."

He said the next step is to hire an armed security guard to keep an eye on the place overnight.

He's also asking residents and others who may have seen something to be "good citizens" by calling the police.
