speaking of halloween, did anyone hear those shots last night around 10pm? 19th & Howell I believe? Cops were combing the area but none of them would tell me what happened.
Looks like it (Deano's) got tagged with graffiti recently -- all over the doors and one side of the building. Would call the graffiti hotline, but the several times I've tried them in the past had zero response.
We have either left our doors unlocked or someone has slim jimmed into our cars the last few days. The old ones of the fleet that is.. and for that matter the latter is the highest concern. Just wanted to send an email and alert everyone and see if anyone else has had to deal with such nuisance recently.
I wanted to share a neighbor's experience that is greatly upsetting.
Yesterday, 10/31/07, while at home a neighbor who resides near the corner of 23rd and Pine became aware of suspicious activity next door to her home. Upon investigating, she observed 3 young boys (approximately 12-13 yrs.of age ) forcing the garage door open and entering the home. The neighbor, upon observing this activity, then asked the young boys what they were doing where upon they immediately ran off. The neighbor then called the police and waited for their arrival. The police arrived approx. 20 min. later and apparently found crack cocaine that the boys had thrown from their pockets in their haste to leave the scene. Obviously this is upsetting as far as the attempted robbery is concerned but the additional tragedy in my mind is the age of the alleged perpetrators and the possession of the crack. The blatant attempt in mid day by these young boys is very unnerving and leads me to question whether there are serious hard timers directing this activity...my guess would be, Yes.
I only know that we as a community need to be aware and do whatever we can to help
save our youth from repeating the cycle of drug use and all it entails.
