This past Tuesday, around 7 PM, a victim on E. Montclair Ave. was approached from behind by suspects while he was unloading groceries from his vehicle. They demanded he empty his pockets and he gave them an unknown amount of cash and his driver’s license. They left without the victim being able to get an accurate description.
This could happen to anyone…it’s dark and you are busy unloading your car which is unlocked and also at risk. You are carrying things inside which means your house is also unlocked, providing an easy entry for thieves. Please be careful and keep this in mind whenever you are unloading things from your car at night, especially if you are alone. And again, please report these events even if nothing is taken. The non-emergency number is 271-5333.
