Police scanners in Fort Thomas were relatively quiet this past week, but a few occurrences kept the FTPD's attention over the weekend.
**See the final section of this post for the first in a weekly breakdown of police dispatch calls in Fort Thomas.
Burglary on Holly Woods Dr.
The FTPD has reported a breaking and entering on Holly Woods Dr., occurring sometime between 11:30 PM on Saturday night and 1:30 PM on Sunday afternoon. Currently, there are no suspects being investigated for the robbery. The house was vacant, recently purchased but not yet occupied by the new owners. The perpetrator is alleged to have gotten away with only a Bosch radio/stereo system.
FTPD Lt. Ken Fecher asks that residents all around town, "keep watch on their neighbors' property and as diligently lock up your home and property."
Car Break-Ins Continue
Fort Thomas continues to see car vandalism and theft occur throughout the city limits, typically between the hours of midnight and 6 AM, according to FTPD Lt. Rich Whitford. This summer so far, there have been numerous reports of car vandalism, especially along S. Ft. Thomas Ave.
While the cases of vandalism in May and June are suspected to be minor mischief localized on one stretch of the Avenue, auto break-ins and theft are more wide-spread throughout the city. Lt. Whitford reminds residents to lock your vehicle, even if parked in a driveway, and to not leave valuables (phone, computer, cameras, etc.) visible in the vehicle.
