After a report on the Second District Police Community Relations Committee Facebook page – a woman urged police to check area scrapyards.
In the First Police District, residents of W. 84th Street between Brinsmade and Clark Avenue reported thefts of backyard metal gates. The gates were stolen from the back fences along alleys between W. 84th and W. 82nd and between W. 84th and W. 86th. The rear garden gate at the Bigelow Community Garden Site was spared because it had a lock on it, said residents.
