From Amanda at the Church Hill Crime Watch:
Today, February 9 around 11:30 am, there was a burglary to a detached garage/workshop on the 600 block of 27th Street. Entry was gained through the locked door possibly by use of a crowbar.
The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-twenties, with medium complexion and thin build. He was wearing a shiny black leather jacket, jeans and a close fitting knitted cap.
A Stihl chainsaw was stolen, and the suspect was also carrying a branded toolkit (maybe DeWalt) and a shoulder bag. He took off down the back alley on foot after he was discovered by a person in the house.
In addition, there was a theft from an RV in the alley behind the 100 block of 29th Street. Entry was gained through a locked window over the weekend. Undisclosed items were taken.
If you see anything suspicious, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1. We all have eyes on the neighborhood and any information we can provide the police will help stop these crimes.
Thanks for your help with this,
Church Hill Crime Watch
