Crime’s down but not out.

PACKAGES TAKEN: The video is from Sydney in Fairmount Springs, who reports:

I wanted to share that our Arlo security camera captured a man in broad daylight dressed in a neon vest with a fake scanner stealing two packages off of our front porch when my husband and I were on a walk with our son and dog. This occurred in the Fairmount Springs neighborhood at 41st and Juneau within 4 hours of the packages being delivered. I wanted to share so that our community can be on the lookout for this man and this type of crime. We did file a report with the police as well.

GARDENING THIEVES? Geoff in Seaview sent this report Tuesday:

We just went into our backyard to do some work and discovered that sometime in the past 24 hours someone stole over a yard of bagged topsoil from our backyard.

It must have been quite the operation, but we didn’t see or hear anyone. We’re near the intersection of 46th and Juneau.

    Double dirtbag! If you shop from Amazon consider using their free locker delivery service! Super easy to request delivery to a free locker near your home, and super easy to pick up!  When your package is delivered, Amazon sends you a code to enter at the locker site, your locker door gently opens, and you can get your stuff!

    People are now stealing dirt?  I’m sure there is a big secondary market for DIRT, not!

    It was a older guy w a baseball hat, maybe w a white goate, slinder ish guy, driving an older jeep Cherokee. He was blocking the alley. Saw him w the hatch up but didn’t know he was stealing. I backed out and came in the opposite side sence I could not pass.

      Thanks for the tip, JD. Any idea what color the Cherokee was?

    The reflective vest theft takes some balls.  Maybe the penalty should be that he lose a pair…

Sorry, comment time is over.
