Heads Up: Attempted Break-ins in Bloomingdale

Photo by PoPville flickr user hellomarkers!

Dear PoPville,

I live on Seaton Pl NW in Bloomingdale, and the police contacted me about an attempted break-in in my house. They said the attempt was made by trying to kick our glass front door in. They’ve made sure our windows and doors are secure and say it appears they were unable to get in, however we weren’t the only house on the street with the attempt. Hopefully others houses had the same luck (and sturdy front door) as I did. Just wanted to give the heads up!

We have a broken screen on one of our windows that the police say burglars look for to target houses. Just wanted to get the word out!
