Holiday Pickpockets and Wallet Thefts Alert
As we enter the Holiday Season, the Pasadena Police Department would like the public to be aware of an increase in purse and wallet thefts. These thefts have occurred primarily while unaware victims are dining at popular restaurants or coffee shops, shopping at the grocery store, or browsing at busy retailers. While it may seem convenient to leave your open purse in the shopping cart’s child seating area, or hung over your chair at the restaurant, this is when you are most vulnerable.
The thieves involved in this criminal enterprise are very good as stealing without being detected and very fast! They are often standing right next to you, seated behind you, and he/she is often having one of their accomplices casually chatting with you as they swiftly reach into your purse and take your wallet. It is not until the victim reaches for his or her wallet that they realize it was stolen. and the thieves have already rung up hundreds of dollars in fraudulent purchases on your credit cards.
Be aware that thieves will look like every other average shopper and have been both male (wallet-grabbers) and female (distractors). Past cases have indicated they are well or casually dressed in blazers, black women’s leather jackets and polo shirts; they like to wear sunglasses (even when indoors) and they are often talking on their cell phones while loitering suspiciously. They usually won’t have shopping bags or shopping carts so they can maneuver quickly and vacate the premise.
1. Have a watchful eye
2. Be aware of your surroundings at all times and who is standing near you
3. Be alert for overly friendly persons
4. Keep your purse zipped closed and/or wallet secure, in your view and preferable with your hand over the zipper opening
5. If you see suspicious activity, please alert your local law enforcement agency promptly

Doo Dah Parade Hits the Streets Tomorrow
WHAT: The Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade celebrates 40 years of irreverent frolicking on the streets of Pasadena this Sunday, November 19th. On Doo Dah day, over 90 unique entries will be joining in the fun from all over Southern California.
Dozens of inventive, if zany, art cars and floats will accompany a legion of revelers past the mom-n-pop shops along East Pasadena’s shady tree-lined streets with a memorable cast of eccentrics, disruptors, political pundits, lone wolves, and steam punks, comprising a legion of merrymakers.
WHEN: Doo Dah steps off at 11am. Immediately following the event, many after-parties will take place in the Parade vicinity.
WHERE: (Official address: 2627 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107)
The Parade loops along Colorado Boulevard, between Altadena Drive and San Gabriel Boulevard, in East Pasadena.
COST: The event is always free-of-charge to the public!
MORE INFO: This year’s lineup includes The Billionaires, Danse Macabre, The Eye, Bildge Rat, Flying Baby Homerun Border Crossing, The Aloha Oy Vey Ukelele Marching Band, Radioactive Chickenheads, Dr. Steele’s Army of Toy Soldiers, Unicorns with Palace, L.A.

EVEN MORE INFO: Known as the twisted sister of the conventional Rose Parade, the Occasional Pasadena Doo Dah Parade began as a grassroots event in 1978 to gain national attention for its eccentric and, often, irreverent satire. The parade which has spawned numerous off-beat replicants across the country was even highlighted in last year’s Wall Street Journal. It was also named by Readers Digest as “America’s Best Parade,” and was recently featured in the book 50 Places You Must Visit Before You Die.
