I definitely would've liked to have known the types of crimes and the vicinities. I live in Toluca Lake, but on the N.Hollywood side. So are we talking stolen bikes or breaking into peoples houses?

Unfortunately the LAPD does not make details of property crimes available, but according to the data there were five thefts and three thefts from cars. For locations, follow the link.
