Neighbor Emily was the victim of a recent burglary, and she brings an important word of warning:
On Sunday 11/12/12 at approximately 4:30 pm, someone came to our back door and stole my Apple MacBook Pro laptop off our dining room table. My teenage daughter was home, and so was our dog.
It all happened so fast that there was nothing she could do. She didn’t see anyone, so she doesn’t have a description.
Someone would have had to have jumped a couple of fences to even get to our yard. We live at the end of Holladay Ave; the houses behind us are on Brewster.
Keep you front AND back doors locked, because there are thieves lurking in our yards!
During the past few months there have been many home break ins, car thefts, and car break ins on the southwest side of the hill specifically, Costa St, Faith St, Holladay Ave, and Brewster / Franconia. Mostly occurring during the day in broad daylight. I think mine was the first where residents were in the house when it happened.
There was a community safety meeting on Brewster on Tuesday night, and an Ingelside sheriff was in attendance. This has become a real problem, and all of us victims are only now realizing that it’s not just us.
