Recent Thefts in Arvada

There have been many stories lately about people stealing packages off of people’s front porches. It is bothersome but when it hits close to home, it then becomes truly upsetting. Two weeks ago, boxes were stolen from a house 7 doors down from me. I drove by that neighbors house, have been extra vigilant about any cars driving down my street and started bringing in deliveries as soon as I could. I was hurting for my neighborhood and scared for us all.

Then when they caught the criminal and I KNEW her, it really threw me for a loop. She had been a good friend in elementary school who I recently reconnected with through Facebook. To learn that she was stealing diapers was a shock. Did she know what was in the packages? Was she stealing to provide for her children? Was she just stealing for the sake of stealing? And in my neighborhood no less!

Be safe out there everyone. Know what burglars are looking for. There is no way to stop it completely but if we keep looking out for our neighbors and cut back on ways to make it easier, maybe we can make the world a safer place.
