A neighbor in the 2700 block of Summerfield Drive reported to me that last night her husband accidentally left one of their vehicles unlocked and someone took everything out of the truck. Luckily there was nothing very important or valuable inside but the thief had to walk all the way up their driveway. The motion-sensing lights did not deter the individual.
Please make sure your vehicles are locked and valuables are removed. Report any suspicious or criminal activity to the police.
Two 18-year-olds have been arrested today for the recent Four Seasons and Breckenridge Estates burglaries. One of the families burglarized has reported to me that police detectives told them their flat screen TV has been found at a pawn shop. One of the suspects was living with his grandparents in the Four Seasons neighborhood near to our FSNA President!
Exactly two weeks ago we had two homes in the neighborhood (on Chimney Rock Ln and Winterhaven Rd) burglarized while the homeowners slept upstairs. In one case a screen was cut on an open window and the other a door lock was shimmied open (the deadbolt was not engaged). Items taken were a big screen TV, iPads, camera and credit cards. So far it appears the theives get in and get out quickly grabbing whatever is close to their entry point.
Now we’ve had a third home broken into overnight last night. It was between midnight and 5 AM on the dead-end portion of Summerfield Dr, another two-story home. This makes three break-ins in two weeks. As before, the homeowners were sleeping at home at the time. They took a flat screen TV and 3 bottles of expensive bourbon sitting on the counter. The mother who lives with them was in the bedroom downstairs at the time.
Please remind your neighbors to be especially watchful if they get up at night. Make sure your doors are securely locked and deadbolted. Keep outside lights on all night. Lock cars parked outside and don’t leave valuables or garage door openers in them.
A neighbor on Summerfield Drive experienced arson last night (Sept. 5/6). In their words:
“We had an arson fire last night. Someone set the UL flag hanging on our front porch on fire around 2:30 a.m. No one was hurt, but neighbors need to be aware.”
We have reports that Rainview Circle has had several auto break-ins recently. A Blazer had the passenger side air vent broken out. And thieves got into a sports car and tore out the electronics from the dash board.
Please keep a look out for strangers and secure your automobiles. If you have valuable electronics in your car, it’s advised that you park it in a locked garage.

- It is not clear if the company she claims to work for actually exists.
- She has lied about speaking to neighbors (mentioning their first and last name) without ever having spoken to said neighbors.
- She has requested to enter people’s homes on several occasions.
- She repeatedly walks the same streets on many days.
She may be totally innocent, or passing information on to others… we can never know. One thing is for sure, her timing for going door-to-door in this neighborhood is horrible considering recent burglaries and arson nearby.
