The Relay for Life La Mirada will take place May 20-21 at Splash! Regional Aquatics Center.

The 24-hour event is the American Cancer Society’s signature fundraising event where the community gathers for one day. Teams are formed and the members take turns walking through the duration of the event. Live entertainment, games, food, and raffles take place throughout the day.

A celebration of the lives of our survivors through a victory lap and a free breakfast is provided by local restaurants. In the evening a path is lit by the luminaria bags that represent someone that has passed on or is fighting cancer. These bags represent that there is still light in the darkest moments.

Special attractions at this year's La Mirada event at Splash! include a Ride the Slide & Buccaneer Bay Wading Pool Fundraiser from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Relay for Life helps support the free services, research and advocacy that the American Cancer Society provides.

For more information about the Relay for Life La Mirada contact Silvia at (213) 700-7485 or visit the event website here.

La Mirada~Last night, the Cabo Taco Baja Grill restaurant was broken into, but the thief left with no loot. Cabo’s owner told us the incident occurred around 2:00 a.m. and told us security cameras show a male with a white hoody breaking/shattering the front door glass after attempting to use a crowbar first. Once inside, soon after, the thief flees when a motion detector activates an alarm. He attempted to grab the cash register.

This past early Friday morning, a thief broke into Sami’s Liquor located at Rosecrans and Valley View Avenues. Stolen was the entire cash register which contained about $200. However, Sami’s owner tells us the cash register itself was worth around $2000.

We have also received an unconfirmed report of a similar incident at Flame Broiler recently.

This past Saturday a truck was burglarized-in broad daylight- while parked at Creek Park. A Blog fan messaged us the incident occurred around 3:30 p.m. She told us that after a short walk, she returned to her husband’s truck to discover the window smashed. Her purse was stolen and the thieves attempted to use her credit card a short time later at the Target in La Habra.

Part One Crimes (homicides, rape, arson, aggravated assault, thefts) continue in recent years, at an alarming uptick in town. In 2014 there were 724 Part One Crimes. In 2015 there were 923 and there were 962 in 2016, according to city staff reports.

So far in 2017, sheriff reports indicate a 20% rise in these crimes over the same period last year. If this trend continues, crime will have risen over 60% in La Mirada in a four-year period.
