Suspicious "Sales Persons"

It was reported today that there was a teal green Jeep Cherokee with Idaho plates driving around the neighborhood. The occupants were one white female with brown, shoulder length, wavy hair, in her 20's, and two white male adults. When they saw a resident outside their home they would stop and ask them if they could demonstrate a vacuum cleaner. The Sheriff's department was called, but a license plate was not available. If you see this vehicle in the neighborhood please advise the Sheriff's department, and if you can get the plate, let the network know.

Additional information from Candace: 1AUR274 is the license plate. They stopped at my neighbor's house and I thought they looked suspicious and wrote the plate number down. The girl was definitely light skinned but looked to me like she could be Hispanic. I didn’t get a detailed look at the two males, but they were white and early to mid 20’s. The girl was also early to mid 20's.

Car Stolen on Duran Circle

From Ann: Last night, sometime between midnight and 5:00 A.M., our white Honda Civic was stolen from our driveway.

Our garage doors are broken and we are unable to fix them at this time due to my cancer and having to be off work, so we are parking the cars in the driveway. They did not take my SUV, so like somebody else reported, they are looking for Hondas specifically.

This happened on Duran. I would urge everybody to protect your cars, especially if you have a Honda! We meant to buy a club but never got around to it.

Update: The vehicle is a white Honda Civic CA, license plate number 4NGR840. If you see it, please contact the police.

Theft off Front Porch

One January 21st 2010, a UPS package was stolen from the front porch of a home on the 2800's block of Ione, near Marconi Avenue. UPS said they delivered the package at 2:56pm, the resident got home at 4:00pm and the package was not there. The UPS driver came back and said he placed the package in plain sight, right in front on the front door facing Ione street.

If you see a set of these headphones they are stolen, they are custom and have only been out for less then two weeks. They are Astro A40's and are meant for gaming, but someone may be walking past your house wearing them with a Mp3 player or Walkman. They have different color covers that came with the package and may be used

Also, two unopened syringes were found on Marilona near Lyle. Caution your children about these, as this in close proximity to DPM Elementary.

Recycling Scavengers again

This morning as I left for work I opened my garbage can to find bags torn open and sorted through. On Watson Street I saw two men loading recycling into a red station wagon, then going on to loot more cans. I drove up to them and let them know we didn't permit that, they weren't allowed to loot here or tear open people's garbage bags and that they needed to leave, as police would be called.

As I got my phone ready to call, I saw two Sheriff's vehicles. I pulled up to the first and let the Deputy know what was going on. She asked if they were two women. I explained they were two men on Watson Street. She said she was investigating a call about two women doing the same thing, and then she proceeded down to where I reported the men. I don't know if they stayed in the area long enough to be caught, but the Sheriff's vehicle was on Watson according to reports from neighbors very shortly after I spoke with the Deputy.

I suspect we'll see an e-mail later in the day about the incident.

Some of our neighbors have expressed some discomfort reporting these people. Please remember, we've had more severe incidents with just such looters. They affect your property values and looting of recyclables will reduce county revenue from the program and eventualy result in higher rates for all of us. Also, if anyone watching sees a quick police response as they did today, people are less likely to feel safe committing more severe crimes in our neighborhood. Thanks to whomever called the Sheriff's Department first, and thank you for your vigilance.
