    How can you head east to 35th if you’re on 30th?

      Sorry, typo, burglary was on 39th, I mistyped it as 30th, fixed.

    This was our lovely neighbor.  She chased him down the road yelling for everyone around to take pictures and call 911. It was the end of the school day, by Arbor Heights Elem. Here’s a good one shot someone got…

    Nice pucture- that guy doesn’t look to be moving too quickly. They’ll catch him soon, I bet!

    Great photo, very helpful.  This is very close to where my block watch captain had an early morning would-be intruder last week.

    The elder neighbor’s house he broke into chased him down 105. We were all behind the fence with our children at the school. By the time he got to the bottom of the hill he looked like he was going to pass out. This is the moment he walked- then jogged again… then walked… He went into her house when she was there! NO GOOD!!!

    Interesting that he looks so unconcerned, he must know he’ll be out in no time – if he’s caught.  Disgusting all the way around.

Sorry, comment time is over.
