“Dear PoPville,

Someone attempted to break into our house yesterday. They tried to kick open the door that leads to our basement in the back of our house. The alarm went off and they left without being able to get in, thankfully. We don’t have a camera in the back of our house but our neighbor does; we were not able to see faces but saw a white pick-up truck with red interior. We have information from our neighbors that the white pick up was driving slowly around the neighborhood, and one of the individuals actually got out of the car to walk up to our house in the front and was using an interest in providing landscaping services as a cover. We are passing this information to the police, but wanted to share with neighbors as well as a public safety issue. We are on 4th Street near the Soldiers’ Home.”
