Years later, this became a Whole Foods Market.
Photograph caption dated September 7, 1961 reads, "Robert Jackson Collins, 20, 505 Coldwater Canyon Lane, North Hollywood, right, is shown after police arrested him about 1 a.m. today. Police caught the youth in the Food Roundup Market, 12905 Riverside Dr., and booked him on suspicion of burglary. Collins' arrest came about after he refused to jump from the roof of the market - the distance to the floor was too great, he told police. He entered the market though a skylight, kicked in the rear door, set off the burglar alarm that led to his arrest. Officers with Collins are J. A. McGregor and G. P. Jauron, from left."
