Police Blotter: Woman Has Her Tires Stolen Twice; Party Gets Out Of Hand

Monday, November 29, 2021

A woman on West 14th Street Court said someone stole the right front wheel and tire off of her 2016 Chevrolet Impala. She said the Housing Authority has security cameras but the office wasn't open yet. She will have property management check the security videos and, if the video is significant enough to help recognize a suspect, she will call for an officer to respond. Later she called back and said someone stole the driver's side tire to her Chevrolet Impala as well. The Chevrolet Impala was parked at the cul-de-sac at the end of Grove Street. The woman believes the same suspect(s) who stole the front passenger tire is responsible for the theft. Police saw a small jack still under the vehicle with several lug nuts lying on the ground. The total amount of loss comes to $200. The woman said again she is going to contact Housing Authority to see if there may be any camera footage of the incident. She said the Chevrolet Impala is not her primary vehicle for transportation but added that she lost her job due to making this police report. She was asked to call back at any time about the matter.

The homeless man was identified and was apparently allowed to stay at this property when "Chuck" owned the business but he longer owns the property and the woman does not know the homeless man and does not have any of his belongings so she would like him to stop coming on her property. If police are able to speak with him, he needs to be trespassed from 5391 Wilbanks Dr. Because he was not on scene, the officer was not able to trespass him. Police suggested to the woman she get several No Trespassing signs and put them up on the property and fences and that she move the pick axe and rake away from the front door.
