There are new break ins in our neighborhood and we must ever be alert to stop these brazen criminals. This past Sunday, broad daylight break-ins at busy intersections...like Loch Dr and Briarcliffe Rd.
Sunday evening, while the residents were at home, someone tried to break in a home on Oakland Drive. Their alarm was on so the person left but the police were called. Also there were a bunch of police cars on Tangle earlier Sunday evening, so sometimes these folks try to hit multiple places at once. If you are so inclined when you read this call one or two of your neighbors and alert them.
Additionally, this weekend a dark blue Honda Accord (4 door) with a license plate beginning with Z was seen trolling on Briarcliffe Court and Briarcliffe Rd. (Briarcliffe Court is behind the pool, off Briarcliffe). An alert neighbor noticed and called the police who came quickly.
There is some thought that persons on motor scooters/mopeds etc still may be cruising the neighborhood and looking for houses where no one is at home and they kick in a door and go in and fill up their back packs with computers, digital cameras, jewelry, etc. So if you see any scooters/mopeds take good notice of the type, license tag etc and jot it down. If they appear suspicious or are stopped in a driveway where you know they do NOT live, call the non emergency number and report it (773-7700). Take down as much identifying information as is possible.
