Update on the Grove: Over the past two weeks, officers have been working hard to solve and crack down on break ins and criminal mischief. On Saturday, July 14th, residents awoke to finding streets/sidewalks painted and vehicles broken into. It was then reported that two school athletic buildings had been entered and equipment stolen. Officers worked fast to identify three juvenile males, make arrests, and recover stolen property. During the same night, additional vehicle break ins occurred that were unrelated to the other incidents. Officers used investigative techniques to identify a 19 year old male. An arrest was made and property was recovered. In both of these jncidents, officers were familiar with suspects from multiple previous incidents. A total of 21 breaking & entering charges have been filed along with 10 theft offenses and multiple criminal mischief offenses. We’d like to say our work is complete, but vehicle break ins are continuing to occur with the latest incidents happening last night. We remind everyone to lock their vehicle and report any suspicious activity.
