Avondale Burglary Reported

A flat-screen television was stolen from a house on Nottingham Drive.

A resident of the 900 block of Nottingham Drive told Avondale Estates police that a flat-screen television was stolen April 13.

Police said a side door was forced open between the hours of 8 a.m. and 7:13 p.m.

About $2,328 in goods were stolen, including comsumable goods, police said.

 

Avondale police are still investigating an April 7 robbery at Rite Aid pharmacy on Covington Highway.

Employees said a man entered the store shortly before 9 a.m., implied he had a firearm and left with less than $100 in cash. No firearm was seen.

Where are all these flatscreen tvs being sold? It can't be too hard for our undercover cops to find the market, which may be out of the area, but certainly must be huge. Then the next step would be locating the "suppliers," who have helped themselves to dozens, if not hundreds, of flatscreen tvs from our neighborhoods in the past two years.

Home robberies seem to be epidemic in our area. As yet, I have not heard of any arrest. This may not be a high priority for the police, but for us who have been robbed, it has been stressful and costly. Are we simply wasting our time and tax money by relying on the police? Can anything be done to fight this terrible assault on our homes? I am beginning to think our police our helpless. I hope I am wrong.

I am beginning to wonder how effective the Avondale Police are also. It seems like they just drive around and issue an occasional traffic citation. It looks like they should focus their patrols in the area down by Memorial and Nottingham. Maybe they should cruise through those apartments down there once in a while...

I recommend home surveillance cameras. While they may not deter theft, they could help in identifying the culprits and hopefully reducing the incidences of crime.
