A 24-year-old man suspected in a series of vehicle burglaries in Manhattan Beach was arrested early Thursday.

Keith Aaron Whittington of Los Angeles was arrested about 1 a.m., said Manhattan Beach police Detective Traci Navarrette. The location of the arrest was not disclosed.

Whittington is suspected of burglarizing several vehicles in and around a residential neighborhood in the southeast area of Manhattan Beach, Navarrette said.

“Investigators believe Whittington specifically targeted unlocked vehicles and there are likely many more victims that have not reported crimes to police,” she said.

Anyone who has had property stolen from their vehicle was urged to make a police report, Navarrette said.

Whittington was being held at the Manhattan Beach police jail in lieu of $20,000 bail and was due in court Friday in Torrance.

The public was urged to lock their vehicles and not leave valuables inside, Navarrette said.
