Good morning, everyone, it's 1:18am. It's a cloudy but pretty warm night out. I believe it's in the upper 50s or lower 60s right now. Anyway, yep, I'm monitoring 25 right now, and will be doing so until 4:47am. I'm monitoring this time period so all of you can get a feel of what it's like on a spring night in 25. After I'm done monitoring at 4:47, I won't come back until after my dinner this evening. But this will be the last weekend I do that weekend schedule, until the first weekend of September, since June is only a couple of days away. I try to monitor as much as I can in June, July and August since those are the summer months and is when crime is at it's highest in our area. So on that note, here's crime for the overnight hours and for this evening.
