During our last civic league meeting, the police department reported that there have been four burglaries in our neighborhoods. Two were committed during the daylight and two at night. Please lock your door and set your alarms even if you will be away from your home for a short period of time.
The latest news in this regard is that one of the burglars has been arrested and a warrant has been issued for a second suspect. A third suspect is still at large. If you see a suspicious person who does not belong in our community, please call the police at 911 or the Second Patrol Headquarters 664-6900.
Visit the Norfolk Police Department’s interactive crime tracking web site where you can see the types of crimes and dates they were committed in our neighborhoods.
We did check with the post office about the mailbox at the corner of Pallister and Springmeadow, it will remain active. Although it needs a good paint job, you can still deposit mail and it will be picked up daily.
