NEast Links: Bringing you additional Northeast news

The tire slashings in Mayfair aren’t over. After a quiet spell, tires on 10 cars on the 4200-block of Aldine Street were slashed early Monday morning. The slashings began last fall, and thus far, the only arrest has been for what appears to be an isolated incident [CBS3].

Police in the 2nd District are looking for a bank robber who stole cash from the Wells Fargo at 700 block of Adams Ave. Friday. The suspect wore Muslim garb when he handed the teller a threatening note [Philadelphia Police].

What does the Frankford CDC do, and what are its goals? Tracy O’Drain and Michelle Feldman of the Frankford Community Development Corporation explain in the first installment of an interview series [Frankford Gazette].
