Unfortunately, we had a rarity on the Crest recently. There was a burglary on Flaxton. The police interviewed two witnesses and this is a synopsis of their account of the incident. The burglary took place at around 9:30 am when the owner took the kids to school and ran some errands, retuning at about 12:30 pm to find her house had been ransacked. Miscellaneous jewelry and a laptop computer were stolen. Although the doors and windows were locked from the inside, the burglar figured out a way to jimmy open the sliding glass door at the rear of the home. The perpetrators have not been apprehended.
We all have a duty to report suspicious activities in our neighborhood to help prevent these types of crimes. Many of our neighbors have called the police when they see suspicious activities and the police encourage us to do so. They have no problem investigating a false alarm. It’s much better than having apathy from the neighbors while possibly a real crime is taking place. The police department will be more than grateful that you take an active role. So will your neighbors!
