Crime Stats made available
Most burgularies along Sylvan and Dill corridor during day and overnight. Have placed patrols to cover these times.Q: Burgulary at 789 Dill is done by someone knbown to the neighborhood who has broken into many homes. Do you know anything about it? No Q: I have received a lot of complaints about juveniles, particularly Beatie and Desoto. We need to find out who these people are. We need adresses so we can work with the police department. Contact Joyce. Drug houses or vacant houses, please let him know. He has an officer who placards properties. Any other concerns e-mail him! Q: Drug transaction noticed, wrote down license plate number. Can anything be done with this? A: Call 911 and let them know taht you saw this. They will try to get out there as fast as they can. Q: I saw two suspicious people with a bag of tools casing a contractor working on a house. Still no one has shown up. A: The key to these calls is to be as honest but as dramatic as possible. If an officer doesn’t come up. Call back and ask them to escalate.
Q: There was gunfire at a dope house. What can be done? No one was arrested. A: It may have been that there was no consent to enter and search.
