I wanted to let others in the neighborhood know about a burglary/car theft at our house last week. We live at 3rd and Varnum NW. According to the detectives it was pretty standard procedure: He came in through the roll up garage door to the alley, threw a rock through our basement window, loaded up my roommate’s car with our T.V. and laptops, etc., found her keys near the back door and escaped in her car. We have an alarm system that wasn’t tripped until he kicked in the front door, for unexplained reasons.
Needless to say, we are still feeling scared and violated. We’re hoping the cops will catch this guy soon, but our neighbors should know that this is going on. If you notice something going on that doesn’t look or sound right, err on the side of caution. Our row house neighbor actually heard a commotion and saw the guy drive away in the car, but didn’t realize until the cops came that he was a thief.”
