Church Break-In

From Chuck:

I learned that either Wednesday or Thursday night of last week, the Town and Country Lutheran Church, (Marconi and Norris), was broken into and that 7 flat screen TV's were stolen, and "some meat" from the kitchen. The criminals apparently entered the grounds by cutting through the fence on the west side, from the Amber Grove Apartments. They broke locks and were able to get into the buildings where the equipment was.

Neighborhood Protection Meeting

On Tuesday 22 Sep 2009 at 7 pm, there will be a meeting at the AT&T building located at the corner of Watt and Kings Way, (follow the signs). This is a Home Owners Association meeting, but all are invited to attend, because it involves the security of our neighborhood.

We will be discussing, among other things, the proposal to hire a security patrol for our neighborhood. This will come at a cost, and all that are willing to get involved are strongly encouraged to help. If you are part of this network, and your neighbor is not, please inform them of this meeting. Employees of the Sheriff Dept. will be present, and answer questions.

DPM 3700 Block Kings Way Attempted Break in SUSPECT CAUGHT!

Hi Chuck! Around 10:30-11:00 on September 9th I heard somebody trying to break in my back door, exact same thing as last time, except this time I saw the man. I called 911 and just by the grace of god there was a unit already at the corner of Watt and El Camino, they arrived in 2 minutes , No one was in our yard but they found the suspect running away from my house down Duran. The police called me up to drive to their location and identify the man, The man they had was indeed the man I saw in my back yard I was sure of this by several distinct items he was wearing including dark hat with white rim, rolled up jeans and white and black shoes. The man they caught is on (probation or parole I forget which they said) and a wrap sheet ,according to the police, a mile long with BURGLARIES. I believe this is the same man that attempted to break in a few weeks ago because he used the exact same tactic. CSI is currently on their way over to take fingerprints and photos, The suspect has been arrested for violation of (probation/parole) and attempted burglary.

Random Acts of Kindness

From Trish:

We hear of such awful things in our neighborhood. I would like to let everyone know what a great area we live in.

My dog loves being out front. He may go to a neighbor’s house, but rarely more than one house away. I have had several people stop by, get out of their cars, come to the door, to let me know he is out. This happens at least twice a week. I think this is unheard of. There was one man who knocked even with my dog barking incessantly behind him.

This is not what is considered normal behavior these days. We hear about people not caring, crime, etc. I want to say I LOVE THIS NEIGHBORHOOD! Thanks for being my neighbors. (Please believe me, the dog knows where he lives—he is usually waiting for the neighbor across the street who gives him “cookies” twice a day. The patience…)
