Crime Alert- Monday evening around 11 p.m.- an intruder entered a Boyce Street backyard- and was frightened away by an alert neighbor and a little barking dog. Evidently the person jumped over a fence and was gathering items in the yard to steal. The neighbor heard an unusual noise and looked out his back door to check on things. When he saw that the person did not belong in the yard- he hollered at him. The intruder dropped everything and hopped over another fence. (The little dog was also giving the guy the business.)  Meanwhile, the neighbor’s wife called SRPD. This is a good example of the importance of knowing your neighbors and using the principals of Neighborhood Watch. Thank-you neighbors!
