Sgt. Carter successfully served two warrants this month. One resulted in the recovery of $9000 and drugs including oxicontin and meth at an address on 20th Ave NE. A second warrant at 2112 Como Ave SE recovered more meth.
The leading crime in the Second Precinct remains theft from motor vehicles, especially theft of electronics. If you want to keep your electronics, take them with you.
also seen a rise in burglaries, which happens every fall, as people,
especially students, move into the neighborhood — people don’t think
about securing their gear or their apartments, and don’t know who their
neighbors actually are.
Finally there has been an uptick in domestic assault.
