• A Rash of Crime in Edgewood Park…WTH?

    Ugh…a rash really makes me itch.

    Recently — last week — there was a broad daylight home break-in around Edgewood Rd. & Blandford (reported to me by the neighbor).  Not exactly sure of the extent of what was taken or damaged as I have not seen the police report.  This just compounds to some recent best prices on viagra auto break-ins — ok, so more specifically, MY car in my own driveway as well as some folks on Warwick — that have been occurring in the last 2 months.  In talking to my contact at the RC PD, there’s been a rash of home break-ins in the ‘west of El Camino’ part of Redwood City…like 3 in the last 3 months.  Unusual because the typical ‘rate’ is 3 in one year.

    Whether it’s the economy that’s causing this, or criminals feeling extra bold these days, everyone should definitely not take this lightly.   If you might have seen in the news, a broad-day break-in in the Belmont Heights area occurred in early June, where the 88 year old resident was attacked and subsequently died as a result (see article here).

    Being vigilant in watching what’s going on in your neighborhood is key.  A home alarm is fine, but not a 100% deterrent.

    A good refresher is to listen to the podcast I did in May 2008 on Home Security (where I interviewed a Redwood City police officer).  The link for that one can be found here.

    Keep your eyes open for anything ‘strange’ going on in your neighborhood, and don’t be afraid to report it!
