Edgewater Police Report: 8/8-8/13/2016


From Edgewater Police Chief John Mackey:

A resident in the 2200 block of Marshall St. reported that during the overnight hours of 8/14 that his 1999 Subaru was broken into while it was left locked and unattended in the driveway. The thief(s) stole a couple of phones, tools and a wallet containing several credit cards. On 8/15 the Westminster Police arrested a shoplifting suspect that had the Marshall St. residents credit cards on his person – more investigation to follow.

Neighborhood Watch

The City of Edgewater Police Department is revising our Neighborhood Watch program. There appear to be Neighborhood Watch Signs in the city that are not listed in our current records and we would like to update the list of neighbors within each Neighborhood Watch Block.

The goal is to communicate with that block captain to reinstate them and to get the block reoriented on how Neighborhood Watch will benefit both the neighbors and your police department.

Please notify Lorenzo Rendon, at volunteers@edgewaterpd.com our volunteer coordinator with the police department and spearheading the Neighborhood Watch program in Edgewater.
