2014

12/5/14 – One of our neighbors on 82nd Court, the first cul-de-sac on the left coming into our neighborhood, house was broken into on Thursday 12/4.  Apparently the thief/thieves used a tool (a post hole digger) that was in a neighbors yard to pry open the back window of the house.  They went through drawers and night stands and stole jewelry.  They seemed to be targeting the jewelry because they did not take any electronics,(there was an IPad in plain view). Most of the jewelry stolen was gold.  They believe it happened between 5:15 and 6:15.  The police believe they were in and out pretty quickly.  They dusted for finger prints but did not find any.

If anyone saw anything suspicious around that time on please let us know.  Please keep an eye out for anything suspicious and call the police if you see anything.

11/21/06 – Notice from a Neighbor – just wanted you to be aware of what went on tonight (Tuesday 11/21) around

7:30. I happened to look out my front window and looked over at the Powell’s – 8218 NW 82nd Court house and saw an African American male that looked to be in his teens trying to use the keyless entry on their garage. He tried to use it a couple of times and had no luck. He was wearing blue jeans and a white jersey shirt. After trying to use the keyless entry he then walked between the Powell’s and May’s houses back towards the Mays’ back yard by their trees. A minute or two later the same individual came walking back toward the Powell’s house toward the back of their house. Michael went across the street w/his flashlight and checked everything out and couldn’t find anything. The Powell’s were gone and their house was totally dark. I finally got in touch w/Amy and told her what happened. I then went in Amy/Ryan’s and turned on some lights to make it look like someone was home. I did call the May’s to make to see if Amy may have called them or something to get in their house or something and she said both her boys’ were inside. I just thought you should know since you are the block watch captain.

09/26/06 – Our Neighbor at 8116 nw 80th. said his mailbox was damaged during the early morning hours of 9.26.06. It looks like someone took a bat to it or possibly clipped it with their car.

Last night (06/21/06) between 2:30 am and 3:15 am three different neighbors on 81st terrace reported someone aggressively ringing their door bells. One neighbor said someone was ringing her door bell and pounding on her door. A suspicious dark car was seen driving slowly down the street with no lights on. One neighbor called the police. The police did not find anyone in the neighborhood, but did mention that some houses had been tee-peed. I did not receive any reports of this from any of the neighbors.

He said he heard the guy walking around on the main floor then the guy started walking up the stairs. The homeowner met him at the top of the stairs and the guy freaked out that someone was there and he jumped over the bannister and took off running.
