The homeowner also reported there has been an inordinate number of strangers walking and driving down 43rd, which seems to have become a shortcut for unruly teens and speeders of late.
Thieves often take advantage of open garage doors when homeowners are in the back yard gardening or enjoying the day. Close and lock all of your doors especially when you are in the back. You never know who might slip into your garage to take something.
And as always, if you see suspicious people in your neighborhood, call 911 with a description.
