Whats the logan fest have never heard of it and dont they usually have a carnival by your block did it past already

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

I think the Logan Fest is new. In any event, it's being held on Logan Boulevard. I think it lasts through this week. About the carnival, it's at St. Hyancinth's. We don't have it until mid August. Two days after it, I'll be going on vacation from blogging.

Blonda said...

Vacation! what will we do without you. I liked your urging us to get more involved. I jump up on that soap box all the time. It's hard to practice what I preach. Thanks to your words and hard work here I will put in the extra effort.

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Yes, Blonda, vacation :). It's just for five days, though. I'll be back. I need a break from the blog once in a while.

I agree that it's hard to practice what you preach. But, like you, I will continue to urge people to do what they can.

14 had you busy last night. Seems like every area is starting to pick up with bad behavior.

Our building was tagged over the weekend. I'll post the pic to the FB so everyone can let me know which gang did the defacing. I've always wondered, with spray paint illegal in the city, do gang members pile into the minivan and drive out to the burbs to pick up a few cases?

AvondaleLoganSquareCrimeBlotter said...

Hi Ally. At some points, yeah, 14 had me busy. But, I think since I covered overnight, that was just all of the calls coming in through the overnight. 14 covers about 90% of Logan Square.

Sorry to hear about your building being tagged. When you post the pic up on the Facebook page, I'll take a look at it as well. About the spray cans, I'm thinking they probably do get into their cars and head out to the suburbs.
