We are receiving information from readers about some home robberies taking place in the past two days on Santa Clara and San Juan (not sure which blocks.) One reader’s house was robbed and they have noticed a group of kids (wearing backpacks) banging on doors, claiming to be friends with the occupants but not knowing the occupants’ actual names, and sometimes disappearing leaving one kid out on the street, and then reappearing in the alley.
The reader (aka robbery victim) contacted the police and were told that unless they catch the kids in the act of entering property, the police can’t do anything about it. Of course, we will contact the police ourselves and see if we can’t convince them to patrol the area. In the meantime, if you live in that area, please be aware and let the police know if you see anything suspicious going on.
