Many recall the notices we sent out a couple of months ago about thieves robbing construction and remodeling sites…stealing appliances and other valuables to pawn or sell. According to Police Officer John Dempsey, the city and county are still having problems…the most recent being about 2-3 weeks ago. He said they will likely continue. He believes this must involve at least 2 people, possibly driving a box truck or pickup with trailer. The appliances will probably not be in a box. He asks that any suspicious activity be reported to the non-emergency number (864.271.533) but if you see a robbery in progress, please call 911 for immediate action.
Please let your neighbors know, especially those doing renovations, etc. Doors often get left unlocked by subcontractors, etc., which just invites these thieves. Keep your eyes open. That’s what ‘neighborhood watch’ means.
