This evening, between 5-8:00, someone took a beer bottle and smashed it against the rear view mirror of my green truck. The hit removed all the glass and broke the holder off in numerous pieces. We found the pieces of bottle all over my yard and street. We don’t know whether other people are seeing a large amount of vandalism, or not, but we continue to be attacked —-the cars are constantly egged, things are thrown at our house. I know that there have been numerous break -ins in the area. At least once a month we have our cars vandalized. We have spoken to the police. If anyone has seen anyone or anything, please notify us.
Please print this, I would like to know if anyone else is seeing this kind of activity. Thank you for helping our neighborhood. Mrs. Missing
To WPV Residents.
Sadly it has been a busy weekend for us and our neighbors. I have listed several emails I have received and a message from Sgt. Regis Thimons. Plus there was a break-in in Wellington Park Villas and jewelry was stolen. See last email

Just wanted to let our neighbors know that tonight around 11:30, either a big car or small truck rammed into our garage door causing a huge dent and caved in the garage door. We heard a car speed away but we’re not able to get a license plate number. We called the police so they would have a record of it. There were no tire tracks on the grass indicating random (drunk??) driving so it
would seem that this was done purposefully. Wish it weren’t so!
We live across the street on Carrigan Way. We heard the loud boom and then squealing tires. The damage to their garage door is simply irrational. Also, about an hour earlier, my wife believes she saw someone through our front porch stained glass windows approach our front porch but then leave.

The events that are being described are classic examples of how “bad guys/girls” find out if anyone is home so they can target the home for a burglary. That is why it is so important to be extremely active and aware of activity in your neighborhood to take care of each other.
Just FYI for everyone also, the group of teenagers that are going around sub-divisions selling candy as a “fundraiser for a church in Indianapolis” for the most part is a huge scam. There are adults picking up kids to sell the candy for $6, the kid gets $2 and adult gets $4. No church is involved. Two kids that were in town doing just that this past weekend, decided to go and commit two robberies of pharmacies in Clay Township this past Sunday 10-4-15. They were apprehended. Keep in mind that if they are going door-to-door, they need a county peddlers permit, which they do not have as of right now, so call the police so we can get them out of the area. Also something to keep in mind, we were told that the reason these groups are coming to South Bend because the people are “so generous” and tip well. So the million dollar question of the day ” How do we get rid of these people from coming into our neighborhoods?” Ding…Ding…Ding- DON’T BUY FROM THEM!!!
Everyone please play your hunches, stay alert and be aware of your surroundings all through your neighborhood.
