On Monday between 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. a home at the corner of Oakdale and The By Way was burglarized. Thieves crowbarred open the rear door and then spent only a few minutes, according to police, searching the master bedroom for valuables. They took everything that appeared to contain jewelry, including empty decorative boxes, and they rifled through a dresser and armoire before stuffing the items into a pillowcase stripped from the bed.
While fine jewelry was stolen, the boxes also contained items of lesser commercial — but great sentimental — value.
I just heard from our landscaping company that their truck was been broken into on the last two visit to our house (2000 block E. Lake Rd). The dates were Oct 23 and Nov 6 at approximately 8:00am. I am shocked and concerned that someone is so brazen to cut a lock on a truck in our driveway and steal lawn equipment in the height of traffic, in the broad daylight and while the workers are in the backyard. If anyone saw anything on either of those mornings please let me know. Unfortunately, the police were called but refused to send a officer to the scene.
