I saw someone who looked like the person on the video (most notably, the diagonal backpack strap across chest) and immediately called 91i. The person was casually walking down my neighbor’s driveway across the street then turned onto Oxford Drive towards University Drive. I will provide update if/when available.
Just 20 minutes ago, this afternoon, Sunday March 26, I noticed a young black male walking down the street and he looked oddly out of place.
I noticed black car backed in at the end of my neighbor’s driveway, which was very odd.
I saw some young black males walking around at the top of the driveway, looking at the stuff stored there and I called 911.
Suddenly, one person jumped in the car, backed up then driveway and they proceeded to put things in the car.
Then, they quickly sped off while I was on the phone with the police; I was unable to get a license plate or photo of the car.
Literally a minute later, my neighbor returned home while I was still on the phone with the police.
The owner is now assessing what items were taken.
This experience was disturbing. Please watch out for yourselves and your neighbors.
For the past two days, my daily paper has not been in my driveway. When I called the delivery person, he assured me he had delivered the newspapers both days, between
4 am-5 am. He commented that he saw a small SUV parked at the corner of Bexley and Oxford, which seems odd for that time of day, so I passed that information on to the police. Please stay aware and report any unusual or suspicious activity to the police.
A package was delivered by USPS(and probably left on the porch)to a house on the 3000 block of Oxford.
This occurred last Wednesday July 13 and when the owner returned home, there was no package.
We will provide follow-up info if/when available.
A neighbor on Yorkdale reported that a break-in occurred yesterday Thursday July 14 sometime between the hours of 8:30 am and 7pm. Some electronics were stolen and the police were notified of the break-in yesterday evening when the renters returned home. Further details will be posted when available.
The break-in happened last night (Saturday, July 2) when the residents were out of town and unfortunately one of their cats (Spencer) is missing.
He is a sweet black and white boy, but he may be skittish, as he is an indoor-only cat.
If you catch or spot him, please call 919-698-2136.
(Updates on break-in will be provided when available, police were notified)
A dark brown male pit bull was found today (Saturday, March 26) in our neighborhood.
He’s currently hanging out in a fenced-in yard for the time being.
If anyone knows who he belongs to, please contact Kristin on Oxford Dr. at 919-260-8713.
This morning (Wednesday March 23), a neighbor was walking her dog on Oxford and noticed that a piece of screen on the front porch at 3011 Oxford was cut and flapping in the wind; around the back of the house, a screen was pulled off the kitchen window.
The owner of the house, who is currently out of town, was notified and the police were called. The owner said the security alarm was not activated and it is functioning correctly.
As a precaution, another neighbor will be parking a dark colored Honda in the driveway at times while the owner is out of town for the next couple of weeks. The screen is expected to be repaired today.
Updates will be provided when available after the police have checked things out.
Please call 911 if you see anything out of the ordinary, day or night.

It’s time to turn back the clocks tonight.
AND-it’s a good time to change batteries on smoke detectors!
