During a time of crisis in the summer of 2011, a neighborhood came together and critical attention was brought to an escalating situation thanks to the leadership of one community watchdog unwilling to let the "bad guys" win. Historic Mission Hills and surrounding areas had suddenly become the target of a several weeks-long crime spree involving late night thefts of dozens of bronze historic designation plaques from individual residences. Tragically, also stolen were the original more than one-hundred-year old bronze markers on the beloved Inspiration Heights pillars, which had only recently been rediscovered and remounted after being thought lost for many years.
