Another quiet month in the neighborhood
For reasons unknown (and in order not to jinx the situation we won't speculate) criminal activity--at least as reported to the police--was virtually non-exist during the month of February. Here's the rundown: one house break-in, one car prowl, two incidents of credit card fraud or theft, and one threatening situation.
The lone reported house break-in occurred on February 4 on the 1900 block of Parkside Drive in Broadmoor. The homeowner reported to police that during the previous night, while she and her family were at home, someone had apparently entered the house and removed her wallet from her purse, which she had left in the kitchen. She admitted that she may have left the kitchen door open, and police found no evidence of a forced entry.
The red exclamation-point icon on the map above designates the location of the threat incident that occurred at the Madison Park Chase branch on February 21. According to the police report, that morning a customer had became irate when he learned that his sibling, with whom he had a joint bank account at Chase, had transferred money out of the account. The customer reportedly threatened the bank employee who had given him this news, stating that he planned to return to the branch with a gun. The customer did not, in fact, follow through on this threat, which Chase reported to police seven hours later just to put the incident on record.
