There was a break-in in the neighborhood recently, at a home on Eager near Presa.
Reports circulated that another home may have been burglarized as well; however, our community safety officer, Officer Ron Strothman of the SAPD, tells us that there was a single break-in, not multiple. Lavaca, he assures us, is a safe neighborhood.
Of course, even one break-in is disturbing, and Officer Strothman also passed along a few tips.
First, he suggested that residents contact him to request a home security inspection. You can reach him by phone at 207-5176 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
He also asked that neighbors report suspicious persons or activity by calling 207-7273. “This is a positive way of reducing burglaries,” he told us.
