Gold Heists Sweep Los Angeles

In a recent article in the Fiscal Times, there is a striking rise in the frequency of burglaries and robberies in the Los Angeles jewelry district. The times reports that parts of downtown Los Angeles look more "like a military zone than a commercial corridor". Crimes involving gold and precious metals are becoming more commonplace as gold continuously sets record levels for its value. Quoting the article (found here), the Times says:

"The gold fever that has driven prices to an all-time high is also fueling a crime spree in the precious metal. Police nationwide are seeing an uptick in robberies and burglaries related to gold prices, which peaked at $1,891 an ounce last month, up more than $600 from a year earlier."
