A reader writes in relating her experience with the rash of recent car beak-in in the area:
I live at 6th and F, NE and there has been a string of car break-ins. My car was broken into between Tuesday and Wednesday while it was parked in my driveway in a very well-lit alley. As a result, the police placed pink flyers on the cars surrounding the neighborhood with generic tips to prevent break-ins. However, there was nothing visible in my car and they still broke in (and took a bat to the body of the car as well as the windows).
If you want, please give readers the heads-up to be extra vigilant and on the look out for who is responsible - and to be extra careful in their alleys.
