Police issue burglary spike alert in 7th District

The following is a message from 7th District Capt. Joe Zaffino:

7th District residents, please be advised that there has been a spike in burglaries within the boundaries of Grant Avenue to Rhawn Street and Roosevelt Boulevard to Krewstown Road.

We are asking that all residents be diligent in keeping a watchful eye in their neighborhoods. Remember to lock all doors and windows and keep windows down on all first floor dwellings. Report any suspicious activity to 911 immediately and do not take any action.

Anyone seeing a gold-colored Nissan occupied by three white males lingering or driving through their neighborhood should call the police, as these three males are persons of interest. Stay safe.
