Cargo thieves stealing packages from trains in Downtown LA


LOS ANGELES - It’s a shocking sight... thousands of torn up packages and boxes stretching for an eternity along the Union Pacific rail lines east of Downtown Los Angeles.

Cargo thieves break into the containers, as the trains slow down or stop in the area, go through packages and take what they can. It’s a problem that it getting worse.

Over 160% increase in cargo thefts in LA County" says UP spokesperson Lupe Valdez. That’s about 90 containers a day.

She explains the problem exploded when bail was suspended, as was the prosecution of misdemeanors.
"We’ve made arrests, but we have yet to hear back on a single prosecution," Valdez adding, explaining that they’ve worked closely with LAPD and LASD to target criminals in open areas. But there are no repercussions, she adds, so they are back the next day.

In December, Union Pacific sent a letter to LA County DA George Gascón asking for help. FOX 11 reached out to Gascón’s office asking about the letter and why UP has not heard back.

The DA’s office responded with the following statement:

"Our office is committed to working with law enforcement to ensure collective safety across Los Angeles County’s sprawling infrastructure, whether it’s at our ports or on railroad tracks.

Some cases presented to our office by Union Pacific have been filed, such as burglary and grand theft, while others have been declined due to insufficient evidence. We make charging decisions based on the evidence.

Our office takes Union Pacific’s concerns seriously and hopes to discuss this issue more in the coming weeks."

To that, Valdez says that if they don’t get some help, they may have to start diverting routes around targeted areas like Lincoln Heights.

Purposefully unresponsive. Crime is so bad in CA. I'm starting to believe it's a concerted effort to flip the state Republican. If we get a crime and law candidate, they will get my vote, easy.

Sorry, i disagree. A lot of n*ggas just choosing not to work and hold not working as an achievement.

That liveable wage excuse has ran its course. n*ggas have no useful skills after spending years in between the streets and jail, and expect someone to pay them top dollar while they are trained basics. Our community has to say enough with the excuses. The real problem is these young dudes want it now and our community does nothing but reinforce that either you got a bunch of material bullsh*t or you not sh*t. Don't matter how you got it.

Uh hate to break it to you but the TV done brainwashed you. Crime is up but it's still SO much lower than it was in the 90's. Kats act like we're not in the middle of a pandemic.
Here go the receipts fam.

You are probably right, but stats on crime in the 90s doesn't do the people out here any good. While I wasn't here for it, I'm sure lawlessness was worse in the wild west days. Pointing that out doesn't alleviate the current problem. Also, we are in the digital age where crimes are broadcast not only on the news but across social media.

Three people have been shot just crossing the bridge our here. Not sure when it's been this bad, but I've personally witness cats breaking in cars in broad daylight in front of crowds like its nothing.
