A gunman robbed Boost Mobile, 8337 S. Pulaski, at 10:45 am Monday, January 15, making off with two iPhones. A store manager told police that the robber initially posed as a customer. When she went to the stock room to retrieve a phone he asked about, he followed -- throwing her to the floor and taking the phone she had just retrieved. When he threatened to beat her if she did not give him more phones, she began to cry and say she is pregnant. The robber then ran out of the store, grabbed a second iPhone on his way out. He was described as a black man age 18-22, about 5-foot-9 and 160 pounds, with brown eyes and a medium complexion. He wore a baseball cap with a light colored brim, a green bomber-style jacket, a blue hoody and blue jogging pants.

Thieves Stealing Catalitic Converters

Southwest News-Herald, Friday, December 22, 2017

There were 4 mentions of stolen catalitic converters in this and surrounding areas in the last few weeks.
If you can, keep your cars off the streets. Put them in the garage and/or driveway if you have them

  • Nadia RN MSN

    We keep our car in the garage. In our zip code people ride bikes looking for unlocked cars to steal items from. Another good reason for garage parking even if it does require the extra effort. It also keeps your car newer looking longer!
