Construction Site at Sergeant and Trenton

FYI, to anyone who lives in the area...

I just witnessed a guy trying to break into the trailer that is parked outside the construction site at the Southwest corner of Trenton and Sergeant. He was a large guy, under six foot, dark hair, dark shirt. He was with a blond woman, with a long ponytail and a white tanktop. He grabbed a pickax from the side of the backho and went to the other side of the trailer, where I couldn't see him. But I heard the "bang ching bang ching" sound of a pick ax hitting a lock.

I called 911 and when I came back outside, he was gone, but a bunch of kids were looking back at the scene. Three cops arrived and I walked over there. We found the pickax, and the fencing was all moved...and worst of all, the port-a-potty was tipped over. Ewwwwwwww!

Just wanted folks to know so we could all be on the lookout.

Sounds like we all need to start carrying cameras.

Thanks for caring.

Good idea. Just be discreet.

Here's another classy act that happened.

An elderly gentleman who lives 1/2 block away from us was taken away to the hospital last week. The very next night his car was broken into.
