Wanted to take a moment to warn our Bloomingdale neighbors - I live on 1st St NW between Adams and W.  A burglar came in yesterday through a back window during work hours - they pried it open somehow from the outside.  The entire house was turned upside down, all for the sake of a few electronics.  The detective mentioned the same entry (back alley window) and items were taken at two others houses in the area.  This could have possibly been prevented if I had the safety latches of the window up or motion sensors, so please to all - take a moment to go through your homes and protect yourself.  I certainly wish I had, instead of falsely feeling comfortable with the increased police presence :(

  1. Daytime robberies have come in waves in the neighborhood. Whenever I'm home for the day, I'm astounded at all of the vehicles and foot traffic in the alleys. I can't help but feel there are people constantly looking for a quick way into your yard, garage or house.
