We continue to see property crime as our largest problem in Duluth. Our violent crime rates continue to be below the national average. We review the overnight calls everyday and many are nuisance thefts, etc. Here are two that sum up the usual. Notice they are all preventable....
Several vehicle prowls in Parkwood neighborhood overnight. Unk susp(s)
going into unlocked vehicles parked in driveways. Two backpacks
recovered (one owner ID'd and other still outstanding). Laptop, Ipad
and misc tools were taken. One backpack dumped in the street and
another left in a yard. Both were all wet so prowls would have
occurred before (or during) the short rain storm at approx 0300-0330.
XXXXX XXXX called to say his company
vehicles have been hit consistently over the last week with the gas
being syphoned from the tanks. The shop is located on the NE corner of
X St. and X Av. W. He is working on getting locking gas caps and cam's, but would appreciate any extra patrol. He said it appears to be
happening nightly at an unknown time. If you see anything he can be
reached at xxx-xxxx
