Lost/Stolen Smartphone/Tablet Recovery Tips

Losing a smartphone, or having it stolen is sometimes as bad as having a wallet or purse lost or stolen. Nowadays, many smartphone users store a good amount of personal information on their phones. If their phones got into the wrong hands, it could potentially be devastating. There are many ways to help prevent becoming a victim of a lost or stolen smartphone. Below are three quick tips.

  1. Set your phone to require a password or passcode each time it is turned on. For more information on how to do so, visit your phone manufacturers’ website (i.e., for iPhones, visit www.apple.com).
  2. Never leave your phone unattended. For example, placing your phone on a table at a fastfood restaurant or coffee shop to reserve the table; then walking away and standing in line. If you must leave your phone, or any other valuable property, make sure to LOCK IT, HIDE IT, or KEEP IT, to prevent its theft.
  3. Use a locator app and/or smartwatch in case you lose your phone. For Apple iPhones, use the app “Find my iPhone.” For Samsung Galaxy smartphones, visit http://findmymobile.samsung.com/login.do. For all other makes and models, visit your manufacturer and/or wireless carrier’s website. Smartwatches such as the Pebble work with both Android and iPhones, and can emit an audible beep to a lost phone; however, they are connected via bluetooth, so the maximum effective range is approximately 30 feet.


The Los Angeles Police Department announces an arrest in the weekend murder that occurred near Benedict Canyon.

On Saturday, April 12, 2014, at 3:57 PM, West Los Angeles Police Officers responded to a call of a possible homicide in the 10000 block of Westwanda Drive in Los Angeles’ Beverly Crest Neighborhood.

When police officers arrived they conducted a safety sweep of the residence and discovered a male adult victim with apparent gunshot wounds. Officers established a crime scene.

A Los Angeles Fire Department Rescue Ambulance responded and pronounced the victim dead at scene. The victim was later identified as 28 year-old Angelo Armani Eppolito-Autry. Eppolito-Autry was found by a co-worker. Residents reported hearing shots fired at about 3:30 PM.
Investigators and surveillance officers worked around the clock and arrested 31 year-old Gerson Sanchez, in Lakewood. Sanchez was a former employee of Eppolito-Autry and the two had an ongoing dispute over money. Sanchez is being held on one million dollars bail and will be arraigned on Tuesday, April 15, 2014.

Anyone with information on this murder should contact West Bureau Homicide investigators at (213) 382-9470.

Sergeant Mark Durrell will be leaving West Los Angeles (WLA) Community Police Station effective April 20, 2014

Hello All, Sadly I must advise you that Sergeant Mark Durrell will be leaving West Los Angeles (WLA) Community Police Station effective April 20, 2014. Sergeant Durrell arrived at WLA in June 2009 and soon after became the Sergeant in Charge of the WLA Senior Lead Officers. He came to WLA from the Office of the Chief of Police and brought a wealth of experience and knowledge after closely working with many diverse communities. He has been a solid champion for WLA and instrumental in crime reduction, beautification of WLA, which included landscaping, painting, renovation of the Situation (Conference) Room, workout room, cot room and break room. He was the first supervisor to effectively coordinate a very successful fundraiser carnival in WLA for which the funds benefited the WLA Youth Program. He has responded to many of your community concerns and been an effective problem solver. Sergeant Durrell has many more accomplishments while assigned to WLA, however, the most important one is he has truly been a valuable member of the WLA family and community.

His next move is to Operations-South Bureau as the coordinator of the in-car video unit.  If you would like to wish him well his email is, [email protected].  Please join us as we bid him farewell. He is always welcome back and will be sorely missed.

Sergeant Justin Scott will remain at WLA and is the Officer in Charge of the Community Relations Office.  His telephone is 310-444-0743 and his email is, [email protected]
