BE AWARE:  Last week, in the Park Police District, “laced meatballs” were located which a dog had ingested.  Also, in the Ingleside District, another concerned citizen reported that “tainted” food had been left on the street for dogs to ingest.  Please be cautious and report any suspicious food left out to the police.  Don’t allow your pets to ingest such items.

ALERT:  There has been an increase in auto boosts in the area of O’Shaughnessy and Bosworth.  The break ins are occurring around the hours of 9:00am to 12:00pm.  Please report any suspicious activity to the police.  Do not leave valuables in your cars. 

JUST A REMINDER:  Schools are out for summer session.  Please pay extra attention when driving around parks and playgrounds as children will be out all hours of the day.

Recently, a flyer was distributed to the community regarding scams targeting the monolingual Chinese.  These scams involve telling the victim that an evil spirit is following them.  They will ask the victim to bring valuables to pray over as an offering to the spirit. They will return to the victim what is believed to be their valuables. They will ask the victim not to look at their valuables for a day.  When the victim later checks their valuables, they find that the valuables were not returned by the suspects.

We urge all person(s) confronted with this scam to call 911 as this is a crime in progress.  By contacting 911, you greatly increase the chance of catching the suspect(s) so that the police can make an arrest.  If someone approaches you with this scam, decline their help, call 911 immediately and report it to the police.  Be a good witness.  Obtain a description of the suspect(s) and/or vehicles they are driving.
