Neighbor reports a(nother) burglary at this home

September 10th, 2013 · 17 Comments

Justin emailed on Friday: “Just a heads up, friends. There was an attempted break-in to our home today sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.”

He lives near 15th Avenue Northeast and Northeast Northgate Way.

Came home to our front door almost off its hinges and one of the front window screens cut (VERY similar to last time).

This is the second break-in in three months! At least this time they weren’t successful. I am going out tomorrow to get a security system with alarm and camera.

Please keep your eyes open and homes safe!

Aside from yours, the police crime map for September so far shows only two other residential burglaries in Maple Leaf. (The icon on the far left is an office building that lost cash and a safe.)

The other two were in the 10700 block of Eighth Avenue Northeast and the 800 block of Northeast 95th Street.
