Helicopters

Original post made by Van on Jan 24, 2011

Recent break ins and attempted break ins in Country Fair and Parkside have the helicopters flying over looking for the guy.
All morning it's been out circling.
Keep your doors locked people and if someone knocks don't answer before asking who it is. If this guy thinks no one is home he tries to get in a window.
Report any suspicious people you see in your neighborhood. The sooner he is caught the safer we will all be.

Thanks for the heads-up ... we've stopped answering the door PERIOD! Too many solicitors and it's downright obnoxious.

Yes...I don't answer the door either if I don't know who it is. But at the same time it is important to let them know that someone is home by talking through the door and telling them that you are not interested. If you just pretend to not be home than they will attempt to break-in.

There were two burglaries DURING THE DAY in the past several days in DelPrado. Watch out.

My post from yesterday was removed, but just in case this one doesn't get purged, this guy has still not been caught. There have been numerous break in attempts and the police presence in the area is has increased dramatically. (which is a good thing). Although no one at the PW has written story about this, you can find information on this developing story through other local community publications. Maybe the PW will cover this story when the guy either gets caught or shot....

Speaking of solicitors, a few days ago a realtor ignored my 'no solicitors' sign, rang my doorbell and walked away. She left a flyer which went right in the garbage. Ringing the doorbell was extremely obnoxious. She left immediately. Imagine if everyone who left a flyer at your door rang your doorbell when they did it. Hard to believe that she thinks she will ever get my business when she ignores my sign and rings the doorbell to top it off. What a weird person.
