Los Angeles shopping center The Grove adds coil fencing to deter smash-and-grab robberies

As a recent wave of mob-led store robberies has put retailers, mall operators and communities on edge, one popular shopping center is keeping an unusual security measure in place through the holiday season.

The Grove, a famous open-air shopping complex in Los Angeles, has added a high coil fence barrier that resembles barbed wire at the property's entrances and exits.

Management added the "tangled tape" coil fencing, which is made from a custom aluminum-and-steel mesh, ahead of Thanksgiving weekend. The fencing is installed nightly after the mall closes and removed before it reopens, and it's just one of the security measures the complex put in place after a rash of November smash-and-grab robberies at high-end stores in San Francisco and other cities.

The shopping center has also heightened its security presence with additional personnel including off-duty police officers but the fencing is a more novel addition to the options operators can choose from to protect their stores, experts say.

1. Parklet robberies are the new thing in San Francisco

You're dining in a parklet. Car pulls up alongside, thief reaches out of an open window (or quickly exits a passenger door), grabs a purse, cell phone or jacket from the table/side chair/bench, and the car takes off.

Hope the coil fencing works.
