If there’s a house for sale near yours – keep an extra-close watch, advises B, who reports a break-in:
Thought other folks might want a heads up to keep an eye out on vacant homes for sale in Highland Park. We are selling our property and were called (Tuesday) after someone threw a rock through the window and climbed through. As we were fixing the window two kids, around 20, both stopped by, coming in from the alley.
Our neighborhood block watch is very active and folks have been keeping an eye out on the property. However, even with all of these eyes keeping watch, these punks were still around somewhere.
Hate for someone else to have the same experience. Thanks to SPD SW folks for their professionalism and effort. Whole new level of respect for their work and effort to keep us safe. Just wish folks like those we encountered yesterday didn’t make it so hard.
Highland Park and other residents near the city/county line might be interested in tomorrow (Thursday) night’s North Highline Unincorporated Area Council public-safety forum, since crime knows no borders – it’s at 7 pm at the Boys and Girls Club at Greenbridge (9800 8th SW), details on our partner site White Center Now.
