If you saw that police response toward the east end of Sylvan Way this morning, it was for a home-burglary investigation. The neighbor who sent the photo reports someone broke into the house after 10:30 am, apparently via an unlocked door, while the resident was asleep. The suspect was taken into custody, according to the neighbor, who reports, “Our neighbor is fine, just very shaken up.” The SPD incident # is 24-099963. We’ll be following up.

    My family and I live on Myrtle and on Thursday night around 845 pm there was someone going around and knocking on windows at our house. When I confronted them they asked for matches or a lighter. Be curious if this was the same person. He seemed to be pretty impaired and scared us half to death.

    I hope you made a police report on that(which can be done online as well) technically that’s trespass.. absolutely scary behavior.

Sorry, comment time is over.
