“A detective called today and told me they’ve seen a big increase in burglaries in the area”

“Dear PoPville,

I just wanted to send a note that there has apparently been a string of daytime burglaries on and around Maryland Ave NE. My neighbor’s house at Maryland & 11th NE was broken into during the day last week. That same day around noon a man knocked on my door asking for someone who doesn’t live here. A detective called today and told me they’ve seen a big increase in burglaries in the area, with the burglars becoming more “brazen” and that it’s a common tactic for them to knock on the door to see if anyone is home first.”
