“Dear PoP,

I live on 14th street in between Shepard and Taylor. My house was broken into on last Saturday afternoon/evening/night. The thief hopped the fence in my backyard, crowbarred open the basement door (which was deadbolted), and stole my bike, a backpack two laptops and some of my wife’s jewelry. He then proceeded to exit right out of our front door! Quite brazen. The cops came but there was nothing they could do. The bike was a Scott grey hybrid. Not very common. I wanted to post this to your blog to see if anyone had spotted the bike, and to warn them to protect themselves against a similar kind of break-in.”

  • They’re releasing a missing person’s report almost one month after the fact? Seems like any leads on that would be getting kind of cold by now…

    As for the break-in, right on 14th NW is pretty bold indeed.

    • Of course, I meant to say that regardless of any cold leads, I hope anything helps locate Mr. Reeves. Good luck to him and his family and friends.

    • An adult is allowed to ‘go missing’ if they want to.. so sometimes it can take a while to determine/confirm whether the situation is suspicious or not.

      I hope the situation turns out okay.

  • about five breakins in the last week in the 700 blocks of Harvard/Columbia/Gresham area. Be careful folks.

  • My condolences to the burglary victim. I know from experience that it’s a scary experience, especially when the house was already very secured and protected. And it doesn’t help when the cops try to blame you by insisting there must have been drugs in the house (hopefully that didn’t happen in your case, but I know it’s common police behavior in the SW/SE/NE quadrants).

    • What’s doubly-frustrating is when the suspects are always given the same description by the police. You know:

      165 – 190lbs
      5’8″ – 5’11”
      blond hair/brown eyes
      light to very light skinned male
      last seen wearing a grey suit and yellow tie, Paul Smith glasses and wing tips.

      I’m never in favor of racial profiling, but sometimes I think police need to step up their frisking of the investment bankers and lawyers. I mean, they choose to dress like gangstas.

  • it is too bad about both of these. but i would be a little unsure about living on that stretch of 14th. it just seems to be frequented by too many youngish guys hanging around doing things furtively. or not so furtively.

  • thanks for sympathy folks. my neighbors said this is the first time they’ve heard of someone on this block having a break-in, so I guess I’m one of the lucky ones.
