Property Crime Reported in the Foothills Area Command on Wednesday, April 20, 2017

1 Armed Robbery/Commercial:  2500-block of Juan Tabo Blvd NE.

2 Stolen Vehicles:  12000-block of Skyline Road NE, 6100-block of Imperata NE.

2 Residential Burglaries:  1000-block of Loyola Place NE, 5800-block of Eubank Blvd NE.  Entries:  Glass door at back of the home, patio sliding glass door.  Items stolen:  Jewelry, prescription medications, checkbook.

8 Auto Burglaries: 11800-block of Wild Horse Trail SE, 700-block of Nakomis NE, 500-block of Georgene NE, 700-block of Juan Tabo Blvd NE, 3400-block of Reina Dr NE, 2700-block of Christine NE, two vehicles at separate addresses on the 10100-block of Lexington NE.  Entries:  unlocked vehicles, breaking windows.  Items stolen:  License plate, stereo and miscellaneous items.

As you can see by the tally above, auto-related property crimes are our biggest problem both city-wide and in the Foothills Area Command.  To combat this, your police department needs citizens on their team helping by: removing all items of value, leaving nothing visible in the vehicle, locking the vehicle, reporting these types of crimes so that APD gets the information we need to help and by starting Neighborhood Watches.

Neighborhood Watch:  To start a Neighborhood Watch, call Steve Sink at 244-6644 for a Starter Kit.  These groups require at least 50% of the homes on the block at the facilitation meeting and a Block Captain to serve as the point of contact between the neighbors on the block and APD Crime Prevention.  Neighborhood Watch groups help local law enforcement and the community overall a block at a time.  Being citizen-formed and citizen-driven, the Neighborhood Watch program is a great way to form bonds with neighbors and do something constructive to help prevent crime.  If you don’t have a Neighborhood Watch group on your block or you used to have one and it died out, contact Steve Sink at 244-6644 as your first step to getting one established.

Be safe, have a great day —
