Crime Alert- Cars broken into Jefferson St.

Mar 11, 2010 in Crime Alerts, Neighbor News

West End Neighbors take notice!

On Wednesday Morning ( 2 to 5 a.m.) 3 cars on Jefferson St. (near W. 7th) were broken into. Stereo systems and speakers were ripped out and other items stolen. One car in particular suffered $4000 of damage and nothing was stolen except prescription sunglasses.

We need to be vigilant about keeping our eyes and ears open. Have a conversation with your neighbors and discuss the situation so everyone is aware and willing to call police and/or their neighbors should a suspicious situation arise. Take special consideration to where you park your cars. Motion lights and security lighting are a good idea.

Remember that our neighbors on W. 7th also recently had both of their cars stolen: a Maroon 1996 Volvo 850 Turbo Wagon and a Gold 1997 Previa Minivan. At last report, they had not been found or returned. The family is very upset about it- (and without cars!)

There was also an unverified report about an attempted truck theft on Hewett (on the West side of Dutton) on Sunday night.

Our next West End Neighborhood Association meeting is on Thursday, March 18th at 7 p.m. at the Assistance League of So. Co. 5 W. 6th Street. As a timely coincidence, one of our special guests is Santa Rosa’s new Chief of Police, Tom Schwedhelm.
