Neighborhood Watch Updates:

Graffiti report: Neighbor reports that their truck was tagged while parked on the street. (See photo). This new tagger has been causing quite a bit of trouble around here.

Graffitti on W. 8th St.

Uninvited Guest Report: W. 6th Street neighbor reports that they found their garage door flung open and inside, on the floor, was a large, dirty windbreaker jacket. Evidently, somebody entered the garage but it was unclear if anything had been taken. This long term resident always keeps their garage door closed, but unlocked. That will now change.
