As the weather warms, thefts always seem to rise. An NMCA member on the corner of Ashley and Simmons reports that a grill was stolen from their patio. The street is well-traveled and there is a street light right above the patio. There are no bushes, fences or trees, so this thief was obviously quite brazen. There was also a burglary on Garraux St on the 20th. Please keep your eyes open for suspicious people and activities in your area. This is basically a neighborhood watch issue, but with a neighborhood as large as North Main it almost has to be on a ‘street by street’ basis. Neighborhood involvement is the key to a safe and secure community!
If you see suspicious activity of this nature, please call the police non-emergency number at 271-5333 and also let us know so we can alert our neighbors. Remember…you can request a free “security survey” of your property. Just contact Courtney Palmer, Greenville Police Dept. Crime Prevention Specialist, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 864-467-4372.
