Julia wanted to get the word out about the burglary at her house on Thursday – including praise for the responding police officer – read on:
Thought it was worth putting the word out that our house was burglarized in full daylight (March 10th around 3pm) near SW Graham and 48th Street.
They tried to break the glass of the french doors in back of our house and were unable to get through both panes, but did manage to break in through a bathroom window.
They stole 2 flat screen TVs among other things. Luckily, they left our new kitten intact. Our neighbor heard the breaking glass but failed to call the cops right away.
Lessons learned: please be an observant neighbor and call the cops at the slightest suspicion (people break in to your house during the daytime too!), hide valuables, and don’t rely on a kitten to keep guard.
Shout out to the amazing Officer Rees who spared me from a panic attack by securing our house and standing guard.
P.S. Our break-in sounds strikingly similar to the Genesee & 38th break in on 3/9. Afternoon, back door, TVs gone & drawers rummaged.
Police actually say that more break-ins do happen during the day, since there’s more likelihood of homes being empty while their residents are away at work. P.S. Look for this week’s edition of the WSBeat police-report roundup later today.
