I’m on Nextdoor and yesterday afternoon I get an urgent alert that some kid tried to break into a neighbor’s home around 4:00 PM — she was home, and kid just walked up to the back door and tried to come in. He ran off because he was discovered. Description seemed familiar to other neighbors, so he’s probably been the one responsible for some stuff lately — hopefully he’ll get caught.
And yes, it’s a good argument for putting padlocks on your fence gates.
We’ve had a rash of mailbox break-ins.
Cars have been rummaged through.
Now I read that a Walgreens was robbed at gunpoint about 10:30 last night. Apparently a dude matching the same description went to the Walgreens near my house, demanded drugs at the pharmacy; didn’t get the full information on what happened there tho.
There’s been other shit going on too, all around Austin. Just open your eyes a little bit, because your neighborhood is getting nailed too.
Shit’s bad, folks.
If nothing else, get your head out of the sand about the reality of the world we live in. That’s the first step towards keeping yourself safe and being able to do something about it.
