Burbank thieves targeting SUV seats

SUVs in  Burbank targeted for third-row seats
Thieves in Burbank have an unlikely target: the third row of seats in sport utility vehicles.

Burbank police said the third-row seats have been taken from at least four SUVs since Aug. 23.

The seats were valued at $500 to $2,000, and in three of the four incidents, thefts occurred by punching the driver-side door lock.

Other thefts included two laptops, valued at about $900, on Aug. 28 from an SUV parked on the 1600 block of Victory Place in Burbank.
