THUMBS DOWN on this establishment. HORRIBLE OWNER
The owner of this establishment is Devoney Wolfus who has sent threatening communications to Larchmont LA after we tweeted the above photo with the caption, “Door gone from Landis toy store after pre-dawn vandalism on Larchmont.”
This store and two other shops on the street were in fact vandalized and burglarized on January 8, 2013. The damage was visible to everyone passing on the street. You can call Wilshire Division’s burglary detectives at 213-922-8251 to confirm this.
The two other stores have not harassed us in any way — one store let us do our job, while the second store’s staffers were very helpful and upfront in providing us with information and thanking us for our concern.
Because of the strange nature of the circumstances, and the subsequent attempt at a cover-up, locals are speculating that there is a deeper story behind what happened at the Landis Labyrinth Toy Store.
