LETTER: ‘Events like this make me feel very unsafe in our community’
[EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a Letter to the Editor, written by a Reader. It does not necessarily reflect the opinion of The B-Town Blog nor its staff:]
Monday (April 8) on SW 134th Street our mail was stolen by a man with short black hair and white or tan skin driving a white/tan car probably in his twenties. My husband was looking out the window and saw him drive right up to our mailbox, open it up and take our mail. The neighbor across the street was standing just 20 feet in front of him watching as it happened too! We constantly have packages stolen from our porch, and have found our mailbox open on occasion. We called the police 10 seconds after it happened and told them where he was headed.
Separately, this month we received a note from a local pawn shop saying our two diamond rings we pawned were going to be open to sell soon. We never pawned any rings.. and looked into it. A while ago my wallet was stolen right out of my pocket when I was walking around Value Village with my two daughters! Apparently, whoever stole my wallet is now using my identity to pawn stolen goods around town. Nice.
And only last year we witnessed a group of men who stole a car and were running from the cops right in front of our house.
Events like this make me feel very unsafe in our community.
