Red, White and Blue Day coming up / Property crimes over the weekend in the Foothills Area Command / Eyes on Vacant Homes Please!

Stand True for Blue is encouraging those who appreciate our first responders to decorate homes, offices, places of worship, etc. with red, white and blue as a sign of support on Monday, October 30, 2017.  Stand True for Blue is hoping to send a national visual message of gratitude for the men and women who respond to emergencies through red, white and blue decorations and flying the United States flag.

Four of nine reported residential burglaries over the weekend were to vacant homes.  APD needs extra eyes on the block to report any suspicious activity at homes being remodeled, for sale, owners on vacation or who are part-time residents.  What is suspicious activity?  Strangers trying doors, lock boxes, prying, looking into windows, attempting to get over walls or gates or fences at the property, loading up on property from the home, etc.  Just one phone call to 242-COPS (2677) from a safe place with a good description of what is happening will help APD and help you to keep your neighborhood safer!

12 Auto Burglaries:  Friday:  2 vehicles at the same address on the 4700-block of Hilltop Pl NE, 12000-block of Skyline Rd NE, 3100-block of Jane Pl NE, 4600-block of Eubank Blvd NE, 10600-block of La Grange Dr NE.  Saturday:  6600-block of Tennyson NE, 500-block of Tramway Blvd NE, 200-block of Eubank Blvd SE, 10500-block of Lagrima De Oro Rd NE, 3000-block of Eubank Blvd NE, 10600-block of Montgomery Blvd NE.
