Asking everyone pay close attention to cars and people visiting our neighborhood. We are experiencing an increase in reported crimes from vandalism, crimes of opportunity suspected fraud to break ins. Everyone should aware of strangers and cars that do not belong to you or your neighbors. Today a theft occurred on Longfellow across from the park by an individual or individuals in a red Dodge four door sedan. Earlier this week a break in was reported on 2nd Street along with thefts of mail and property from cars along 1stST. We owe it to ourselves and our neighbors to keep Peter Howell a safe neighborhood that will not tolerate crime.
