From MPD:

“Over this past weekend, the First District responded to two reported apartment burglaries where entry was gained through an apartment window accessed by way of a fire escape. Both incidents occurred in PSA 107, north of Independence Ave SE. In at least one of the incidents the apartment window was left unlocked, in the other the resident believes they locked the window. Please ensure that your apartment windows are properly secured, particularly those that can be accessed by way of a fire escape.

The First District has Officers who will respond to your residence to assist with a home security survey. To request a survey, contact your PSA Lieutenant or Carolyn Smith, the 1D Outreach Coordinator, [email protected] . Please call 911 any time you observed suspicious activity or suspicious persons.”
