Community Alert

In the past 24 hours we’ve received three reports of breaking and entering to a motor vehicle. In two of the breaks it appears that the culprits were only after GPS systems that were left on the dashboard. Citizens are reminded to remove their GPS or other valuables from their vehicles each night.

Some things never change: forty years ago it was eight track tape stereos, thirty years ago CB radios, twenty years ago CD players, ten years ago car phones, and now GPS systems. The technology may change but the criminal remains the same.

There have been numerous assaults in Amherst recently. One last Thursday on Shumway Street. I was hoping to find some information about that one and previous assults here.
