  1. It seems odd to me that the Neighborhood Market would be hit twice in less than four weeks, but it explains the D14 cruiser's presence on and off in recent days.

  2. I, too, have been wondering why I see a one BPD vehicle or another parked around the corner these days.

    I noticed that the BPD post asks citizens with information to "contact Area E-5 Detectives." Is this a typo? Is it common for E-5 personnel to investigate D-14 incidents?

  3. FYI, word is that last night the police caught the guy who committed Sunday night's Neighborhood Market robbery. He was apparently apprehended trying to rob the smaller convenience store further down Franklin Street. Looks like the increased police presence in the area over the past few days paid off.

    Silly criminal should have picked a different neighborhood...
