I am writing to let you know about a burglary we just experienced in 16th st heights. I live in a group house and we came home Thursday (11/15) to see that burglars had broken in, taken lots of computers/chargers/other electronics, left everything disheveled, and left. We’ve talked to the police, but we wanted to make sure everyone takes extra precautions to secure their homes and property. Here are a few things I wish we had done; I’d love it if other people could use these ideas to prevent something similar happening to them:
–Make sure all doors and windows are securely closed and locked. Seems obvious but sometimes there are doors or windows you forget.
–Hide small electronics in very hard to find places. If my external hard drive had been better hidden, I might still have it. It looks like these guys rooted through lots of stuff but were generally in a hurry. Larger electronics may be harder to hide well but think about where you might be able to put things. Consider taking laptops with you to work/school, especially if you will be gone for a few days.
–Write down and securely store serial numbers and other identifying data for all electronics, including laptops, cameras, and phones. E-mail it to yourself or store it online somewhere so you can access it if you lose your computer.
We’re going to check online and see if anyone’s trying to sell our stuff, but if anyone has ideas for ways to try to track it down, we’d love to hear it. We do have a few serial numbers so we might be able to prove some things are ours, but really any ideas are welcome. How have other people dealt with this sort of thing?

I wanted to let you know that at 1 pm yesterday afternoon my husband was assaulted and mugged outside our house on Shepherd St. 1300 block. 3 teenagers surrounded him and puched him several times and shoved himto the ground, he got up and ran but they chased, ripping off his backpack. He then turned and chased them while calling the police. Bag was found by a worker in the alley but laptop was gone. I am so shocked and saddened by this violent act in broad daylight on a busy residential street in a neighborhood that i love so much. Residents should keep awareness up at all times i guess.
It looks like something is finally happening at the long abandoned former dry cleaners on the corner of 14th and Colorado. I spoke briefly with one of the guys who seemed to be supervising the construction and he informed me that it will be a two story restaurant with a roof deck. It’s great to see that someone is doing something with the space. This side of 16th Street Heights needs this.
