Crime Alert:

Another Garage Intruder- From a Hewett Street NeighborJust wanted to alert the neighborhood that someone was in our unlocked garage while we were home sometime Thursday night, and probably early Friday morning. We heard a strange noise outside around 9:30 Thursday night and we checked the yard but didn’t see anything. Then at  5:30am we saw that our shop lights were on and the side door was wide open. We think someone knocked over a bike and got scared and left because so far we haven’t seen anything missing. Remember this also happened on W. 6th Street in December- so let’s make sure our garages are locked.

CAT FOUND:  Black short hair, Neutered male, very friendly at 124 W. 6th Street. Call (707) 318- 2853  He is extraordinarily sweet and loving.  If his owner is not found by the end of this month, I will need to take him in to animal control, where he will most likely be euthanized.  (since he is black, older, and has medical issues).
