Someone kindly alerted that I had neglected to tell you the street . The attempted break-in occurred on Oxford. The 3 100 block
There was an attempted break-in in the 3100 block last night at about 10:00pm. The folks were at home, both cars in the driveway, lights on in the house. Someone smashed the window in the kitchen door, reached in and turned the lock to break-in. The home owners were alerted when they heard the glass break so the intruder left. Nothing was taken and the police were contacted.
Please be extra vigilant as the likelihood of this happening again is high. If you saw anything suspicious please let us know.
On Monday a neighbor was walking her dog about 9:45 and reported that she saw an African American gentleman on a skateboard wearing a toboggan hat with a tassel on the top, some camouflage shorts, in his late teens, early twenties . (I am assuming that it was the same gentleman that was mentioned in the earlier post. ) He had come up from Bexley (cul-de-sac) and skated down the 3000 block of Oxford. She kept walking and saw the youth go up the driveway of the Oxford House. When she walked by she noticed he was stopped in front of a chest type toolbox by the garage. They waved at one another and she thought maybe he lived there. However as she got almost to Yorkdale he walked by her skateboard in hand, barely holding up his pants. She asked if he lived there and he said, “my home girl lives there”. She immediately called 911 and reported him as he fled through the Epworth parking lot. His presence was noticed and police were alerted.
Later she approached a gentleman who lived at the Oxford House and asked if a gentleman meeting that description lived there or if a woman was living there. He informed her that there were no such occupants living there. She then told him what she saw .
Please be extra vigilant for any suspicious activity…
I sent an earlier email and I wanted to clarify that the breakin occurred in the Block of 3200 Oxford Drive
Neighbors in the 3200 block were broken into yesterday. An email was sent and reported:
“I want to let you know that our house was robbed yesterday between 10:30am-5:30pm. We are not certain how they got in as both of the doors were locked and it seems that neither lock was forced. We just wanted to give you a heads up. I just want to make sure everyone knows and is aware. Additionally if anyone saw anything that could help police that would be fantastic. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like more info.”
There was another break reported last week on Winton which is a street adjacent to Oxford. Please keep your eyes extra vigilant.
Sometime on Monday during working hours a break-in occurred . The robbers entered by bashing in a back door. They took pillow cases off the beds and used them to go around the house taking things that were left out on counters and table tops. Jewelry, a bowl of car keys and a computer. ( the owner had to re-key all their cars) It is believed that they entered and left from Stanford Dr. A police report was filed.
If you have seen anything suspicious please report it to the police.
Great news that cat reported missing yesterday has been found! Thanks for the watchful eyes.
