Lt.Minton’s Sector 111 December report (PDF) is now available. Sector 111 encompasses Church Hill, Chimborazo, Church Hill North, Fulton, Oakwood, and Union Hill.
The report includes statistical comparisons of violent and property crime for November 2011/2012, and year-to-date comparisons for 2011/2012, as well as a narrative take recent events:
Sector 111 for the month of November was flat for Violent Crime. We had the same
number of violent crimes compared to the same reporting period last year. Property Crime ex- perienced a spike with an increase of 53% for this reporting period. On a positive note, the neighborhood of Church Hill North had a 33% reduction in Violent Crime and a 30% reduction in Property Crime. This is on the heels of the recent shootings in that area.
Some of our notable arrests in November include the arrest of Leroy Smith for the Attempted Commercial Burglary in the 1600 Block of Williamsburg Road. This was accomplished in large part due to some alert residents in the Fulton community who were able to lead us to the suspect. First precinct officers also arrested 3 people in route to commit a robbery in Church Hill North. These individuals were arrested on multiple felonies and a firearm was recovered.
Taking a look at property crime for the month of November, Package thefts have increased in the Church Hill area. The crime trend is for the thieves to open the package, take the contents of the package and then discard the package. If you become a victim of a package theft please notify us immediately. I have included the still photo of the package thief from the 3100 block of E Broad St.
In addition, GPS devices and bikes continue to be hot items to steal in Sector 111. Please continue to be vigilant in securing bicycles and GPS devices inside when possible or out of sight from opportunistic criminals. We only had one motor vehicle theft this month and the offender was arrested. This is a vast improvement over past months and we didn’t have any mopeds stolen!
