Here are some other suspicious activities that have been reported this week to our Neighborhood Crime Watch Block Captains.
1.) Gas was syphoned out of my car located at XXXX (withheld for privacy) Prairie Hen Lane, last night, Oct. 20, 2011.  The car was still locked this morning  and the alarm on.  The gas door had a lock but was opened w a screw driver.
2.) My wife, Kathy, and I started to turn into our driveway at XXXX (withheld for privacy) Parkfield about 9:00 PM on thatFriday night, when we spotted a ‘older’ white car (probably a 4-door sedan, maybe 18-20 years old) parked where we usually part the car we were driving at the time, way up in our driveway itself.  Before I could get out of our car to see if anyone was at the front door of our house, a taller-skinny black person walked from the front door (I think, our house was dark at the time) to the driver’s side of the white car.  My wife rolled down the passenger side window of our car and yelled: ‘Can I help your?’.  The person replied that he was looking for ‘David and X…’, not us.  He drove away and later we saw him at the neighbor’s house and doing the same thing inquiring about “David”.  All he had was a piece of paper, he was not delivering anything.  He did not have a phone number to the person he was looking for.  Both homes approached were dark at the time. Very odd.
3.) On Tuesday, a young hispanic woman, probably in her early 20’s came to my door. Over the barking of my dogs, I gather she came under the guise of trying to sell me some cleaning product. I COULD NOT GET RID OF HER. I think she wanted to come in and demonstrate the product; I told her 3-4 times I was not interested, she would not leave, and finally I just had to walk away. I noticed as I walked to the door, she was looking intently at the ADT sticker on my door. I’m so grateful that my dogs were putting up what seemed to be a ferocious fuss at the door. A few minutes later, my neighbor came over to bring me something and she was still standing on my driveway. My neighbor proceeded to tell her to “go away” ; we were not interested in anything she was selling. I told my neighbor that I thought this girl was acting very suspiciously. Now, I wonder if she was not connected to these burglaries as they happened about the same time.

If you are approached and are uncomfortable,
please call 911. 
Report all suspicious activities to your block captain,[email protected] and/or the police.
