David P . asked us to pass along the news that there have been a number of burglaries in the neighborhood recently.
On a neighborhood list, a homeowner near 43rd and Burke reported that someone “pried open a locked window on our sunroom and climbed through leaving a small step ladder behind.” Cash, jewelry and electronics were stolen. Over by 42nd and Meridian, burglars “went into the backyard, pried open a locked window and climbed in. They rifled through most of the house” and took jewelry. According to the list, the police confirmed that there have been a rash of burglaries in that area.
Over on 4th Ave NE below 45th, Catherine told us that when she went out for a morning walk last week, she noticed a number of cars with their windows shattered.
Be vigilant. Look at your house, thinking like a burglar and take precautions.
And to my mother, who is reading this, no, I’m still not installing an alarm system. And to the burglars who are reading this, yes, I installed an alarm system.
