Breaking & Entering
August 15th 1:30 PM 18300 Block 8 AV NW
Green caravan appeared to be patrolling neighborhood when a Caucasian male, late 30’s, 6 feet tall and about 200 pounds got out of the caravan looking into driveway as residents left. Access was gained through a slightly open window. Screen was removed and then replaced after the burglary. Wedding ring, 2 watches, diamond jewelry taken.
August 16th 14th NW
A white male, about 30 years old, black hair, wearing blue jeans, a black T shirt and carrying a blue bag over his shoulder walked by our house about 6:00 pm and angrily yelled an obscenity at my wife and walked on up 14th NW without stopping. This was unprovoked and frightening.
