8 apartments in fumigated SP building are burglarized

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREStriving toward a more perfect me: Doug McIntyre Eight units at 1240 Centre St. were broken into sometime between the time that workers tented the building Monday morning and when the tarp was removed Tuesday afternoon. The only unit not burglarized belonged to the apartment manager. Pinnacle Property Management in Torrance informed the residents, who were staying at a nearby Vagabond Inn, on Tuesday about the break-ins. The residents, however, had to wait another day before they could return home, since it takes 24 hours for toxic gas to clear out once the tent is removed. “That was the worst part, having to wait in the hotel knowing your home was robbed,” resident Robert Ausbourne said. “We didn’t get much sleep that night.” On Wednesday, residents found their homes ransacked and their valuables gone. “They ripped out all the drawers and threw stuff everywhere,” said Rob Currier, standing in the middle of his apartment. “I go to get something and it’s gone. Just this morning I went looking for my Bluetooth and it wasn’t there.” The burglars took mostly jewelry, video games and consoles, cameras, electronics and cash. Some residents said they found their computers in an outdoor main hallway, as if the thieves left them behind in a hurry. “They sliced the tarp with a knife and busted the doorknobs off the units,” said Jaime Rivas, owner of Kal Fume in Buena Park, the company contracted by Gateway Exterminators in Los Angeles to fumigate the apartments. “I called the Police Department in San Pedro but they said they wouldn’t come until the homeowners had come back,” Rivas said. Harbor Division police Sgt. Mark Jauregui said Rivas’ call was not logged, but it’s possible an officer told him the investigation couldn’t start until the building was safe to enter. “I’m surprised the people at Kal Fume aren’t trained not to touch a tented building that has been breached or if they find the building not secured,” said Andy Santonello of Andy’s Termite and Pest Control in Lomita. Santonello said he thought it was common practice for fumigators to wait until police arrived before finishing the job. State law requires licensed fumigators not only to lock each apartment, but also secure each door with a secondary lock. Already the fumigators have different information than the police detectives. Rivas said when his workers removed the tent, the apartment doors were open and it looked like the thieves broke the locks. Some of the doorknobs were so mangled that workers had to nail the doors shut after they left. However, Detective Maurice Graham said there was no forced entry. “(The suspects) went in and the doors to the units were open,” Graham said. “We don’t have any leads and we don’t know how they did it.” Once the fumigators – who had keys to every unit – removed the torn tent, they entered each apartment, stepping over items scattered by the looters to open the windows to disseminate the toxic fumes, Rivas said. By Thursday afternoon, police detectives had not yet interviewed Kal Fume’s fumigators. “We’ll eventually get around to calling them,” Graham said. If the thieves entered the building while it was fumigated, they not only would have been exposed to deadly Vikane gas, but also to tear gas, which is added to deter people and animals from entering the tents. They would have also needed special respirators, similar to the kind used by firefighters since regular gas masks do not filter out Vikane. “Vikane is very, very deadly,” Santonello said. “If we were to walk into a fumigation we would be dead in two minutes.” Such thieves usually are familiar with how to access a tented building and avoid being poisoned. “Any fumigator would find it very easy to burglarize other fumigation projects,” Santonello said. “Tear gas and secondary locks are well known to all fumigators. We all buy secondary locks from the same supplier, as well as the mechanisms to open them.” Detectives are still taking inventory of what was stolen and apartments are being dusted for prints. “Until we start eliminating people, everyone is a suspect,” Graham said. megan.bagdonas@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Dungloe housing project to proceed after issues

first_imgThe Dungloe Community Housing project is to proceed to construction stage immediately.The announcement comes following a number of issues which arose and threatened the project’s viability recently.Both Deputy Pearse Doherty and Pat the Cope Gallagher have held a number of emergency meetings with Minister Finian Mc Grath recently in order to overcome the issues. The issues had been highlighted by the HSE and were imposing massive constraints on the overall sustainability of the project in Dungloe.The project is funded by the Department of Housing and consists of Community Group Houses numbering 3 housing units of 4 individual self-contained bedrooms at Fair Hill Dungloe.The formal approval was granted to the Co Donegal Parents and Friends for People with Intellectual Disabilities for this development to progress to construction stage.Each proposed unit will consist of 4 individual living accommodations – made up of ensuite room up to current HIQA standards and each unit then will have a communal sitting room, quiet room, visitor room and dining room. When completed it is anticipated that the 3 units will provide assisted living accommodation for 12 people in total.This development will replace the existing unit on the Church Road at Dungloe. The proposed new development will be funded by the Department of Housing and Local Government and we expect construction works to begin within a matter of months.Pat the Cope and Pearse Doherty both added “We wish to pay tribute to the board of the Parents and Friends Association, who have worked tirelessly and have brought the project to this stage.“They have dedicated a great deal of time and planning into making this project a success and now as the project moves to construction stage they have a great deal to be proud of.“We wish also to acknowledge the work of the officials of the Housing Section of Donegal County Council for their excellent work on this project. “We also must acknowledge the intervention of Minister of State Finian Mc Grath, who through his offices and our continuous lobbying of the Department – the entire development as originally proposed and designed, will now proceed to construction rather than a scaled downed version which the HSE were proposing.“It was this revised proposal that lead to the recent delay in finally appointing a contractor for this most worthwhile development. But, we are glad to report that the entire project is to proceed now without delay and as originally proposed.”Both TDs met with the County Donegal Parents & Friends committee to convey this good news as the group were most anxious about the recent delays that were stalling this project.Dungloe housing project to proceed after issues was last modified: May 14th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegaldungloehousinglast_img read more
