Police are calling a neighborhood meeting in a week to talk about the glut of burglars hitting homes in the Maple Leaf, Roosevelt and Ravenna areas.
The meeting is set for next Tuesday, Nov. 16, at the Ravenna-Eckstein Community Center, 6535 Ravenna Ave. N.E., confirmed Diane Horswill, police community coordinator for the North Precinct. It will begin at 7:30 p.m.
She couldn’t say exactly how many homes have been broken into, but SeattleCrime.com is reporting they total at least 20:
The burglars have broken into a number of homes by busting out a back window—often a basement window—with a rock. They’ve also pried open windows and sliding glass doors to gain entry.
One source tells us police believe the burglars are a “younger crowd.”
We counted at least seven home burglaries in Maple Leaf leading up to Halloween.
