We’ve heard about a few recent break-ins on 22nd/23rd Streets.
On Thursday night (July 20th), houses on the 400 and 700 blocks of North 23rd Street were broken into. Someone also broke into a house on the 500 block of North 22nd Street.
In the first of the 23rd Street break-ins, the thief/thieves entered an open window of the house and made off with a small amount of cash, savings bonds and chicken from the fridge. According to the police, they then went to the next house, broke into the shed “for the THIRD FREAKIN’ TIME THIS YEAR”, and used a shovel to pop out one of the kitchen windows. There, they stole less than $5 in change, a $20 Timex watch, and the least-favorite bicyle (“a kelly green Gary Fisher Gitchee Gumee with a suspension seat post and generally crappy components”). In the process, the perps opened and dumped out the contents of all but one drawer and chest in the house to make sure they weren’t missing anything really good.
None of these incidents have showed up yet on the crime map (which does show a break-in on the 400 block of 23rd on July 21)
