Crime Alert: There was an attempted break-in at 709 Davis Street- the Kid Street Learning Center building. It was last week around 2am. One of the neighbors heard a loud crash when they looked outside they saw 2 guys and a girl in the middle of the street. The police were called and a report was taken. They broke the window to the basement. Thankfully the windows are double pane and the 2nd portion wasn’t broke. I’m hopeful that the loud noise is what scared them off.    Sheila Accornero   Kid Street Learning Center
