LAX Imperial Hill - warning
Last week a friend of mine had over $15000 worth of camera gear (1D4 x 2, 500mm etc) taken from a rental car parked on Imperial Hill at LAX. He was distracted by a guy wanting directions and whilst his attention was diverted another guy pulled the camera gear out of my friend's rental car. The thieves rapidly left the scene in a car driven by a third guy before they could be stopped.
So, just a recommendation to be careful up on the Hill... If they got away with it once they may try again, and many of us have a lot of valuable gear with us up there.
