News and Notes

Larcenies from vehicles increased over the last reporting period. Be mindful to not leave items in plain view inside of your vehicle.

Do not leave gifts inside of your vehicle for criminals as an easy target. Be careful and have a safe and happy holiday season.

Significant Incidents

Burglary on Pylant

On October 29th, a burglary was reported at Good Works Loft Offices and the first responding officer found a window that had been pried off the backside of the building. Several businesses are located in the building and a business called 5 Seasons was burglarized. The door to this business was kicked in. A Microsoft Surface, computer monitor, an older MacBook and an iPad were taken. The video camera on the back of the building was also damaged, and a video projector from a communal conference room was stolen.

Robbery on Briarcliff Terrace

On November 8th, police were called to the apartments on Briarcliff Terrace. Two males argued about payment on a moving job they had worked together. They began fighting and one pulled a knife. At this point the victim gave the suspect all of his money and the suspect fled. The victim believes that the suspect lives in the complex and police have a description and photograph.

Burglary on Adair Avenue

On November 13th police responded to a burglary on Adair Avenue. The victim stated that someone broke into her home via a pried open door and stole a range/oven. The home is under construction and did not have an active alarm system. There was a dead bolt on the door but it was not engaged. This burglary apparently happened prior to November 10th as a neighbor reported seeing drag marks on the driveway where the appliance was moved to the street.
