Significant Incidents:
Burglary 1100 Block N. Highland Ave
On July 28, 2018 at approximately 12:20pm, police responded to a residential burglary call from the 1100 block of N Highland Ave.  The victim stated that unknown person(s) stole several items from his garage.  The victim had arrived home at approximately 12:15am and parked his vehicle inside the garage, exited on food and closed the garage door via remote control while walking toward his apartment.  At approximately 11:00am that morning, he opened his apartment door and saw two leather bags on the ground just outside his front door. The victim recognized the bags as being his own that he had stored in the garage. Victim stated that he then went around to check his garage and saw that the overhead door was open. As he began inspecting the contents of his garage, he noticed he was missing: one pair Foot Joy golf shoes, a silver CD case with approximately 40 CD's, one pair of CCM hockey skates, one gray Deuter back pack, one Killey back pack, one Tumi suit case, 2 computer key boards and one tool chest containing miscellaneous hand tools and one power drill. There were no signs of forced entry into the garage. Victim advised that it was possible that the garage door may have gone down when he closed it by remote but due to a problem with the door sensor, it's possible the door opened back up without his knowledge. There were no cameras in the area of the garage. Upon dusting for fingerprints, none were recovered. The two bags that Victim found outside his front door had a card with his name and address attached to one. Victim stated that it was possible a neighbor found the bags outside the garage area and was returning them to his front door. At the time of this report, there were no known suspects or witnesses.
Burglary 1100 Block Stillwood Dr
On August 3, police responded to a residential burglary call from the 1100 block of Stillwood Dr.     Upon arriving, officers met with the victim’s neighbor, who reported seeing a man walking into his neighbor’s yard, wearing a dark hoodie, blue jeans, and a backpack with a bat hanging out of it.  Having noticed the suspicious activity, the neighbor witnessed the unknown male running out of the neighbor’s back yard with a white box in his hand.  The neighbor captured this on video. The suspect departed on foot going toward Los Angeles Ave.  A burgundy car parked in front of the property pulled away as the male left the yard, but the witness was not able to see a plate number.  The homeowner was out of town at the time, but the witness called him on the phone and together they determined that a white Xbox console had been stolen.  No other missing items or damage to the house was observed, and there was no sign of forced entry.  A fingerprint was recovered from the door and forwarded to detectives along with the video from the neighbor’s camera.

Reminder:  All members call 911 first if you see a crime in progress or a suspicious person or activity, and then call the FBAC Phone.
