Public Safety Pictures
Between April 2 and May 11, 2013, 17 occupied residential and apartment burglaries occurred in the Fifth Precinct. 13 of them fit a trend.
An occupied burglary is when the suspect enters the home and a resident is present. Note that this is different than home invasions, which are when a suspect enters the home with the intention of robbing or harming the person inside. In these occupied burglaries, the majority of the residents were asleep and the suspects often did not go anywhere near them. In instances where the resident and suspect saw each other, the suspect fled.
Dig out your walking shoes it is time once again for the Lyndale Walkers Walk-A-Thon. This is where we encourage walkers to be out 24-7. We sign up for shifts and partner up with a couple other people and go out walking, be it night or day. This is our 21st year.
Lyndale Neighborhood Association created several action committees, tasked with putting the neighborhood back on track. One of those committees, rather ominously titled “Crime & Drug,” launched the much less ominous Lyndale Walkers in 1992. And in 1993 the Walkers signed up 50 Lyndaliennes to walk around the clock for seven days straight. With a kick-off barbecue at the Montrose’s “Cabra Shamrock” at 32nd & Pleasant, we were off to the races.

Saturday, August 27th the LNA Crime & Drug Committee and Champions Bar & Grill held a benefit for the Bike Patrol of the Lyndale neighborhood. Tickets were sold and $540 was raised. Champions sponsored the event and furnished all the pizza, wings, pop and beer. It was all you could eat (and did we eat!!) for a $10 ticket, The forty people that attended enjoyed the great food, beer and pop.
The money raised will give us a few more hours of police officers out biking in the neighborhood. It is so beneficial to be able to give the bike patrol officers the areas we want them to focus their time on. Thank you to Champions and to all those who purchased tickets.
Join us for a fundraiser for the Lyndale Neighborhood Bike Patrol Program on Saturday, August 27th from 2:00-5:00 at Champions.
