Possible Road Rage Coming Into Logan Square Via Fullerton

Good evening, everyone, it's 5:04pm. Like I said in my pervious post, it's hard to believe it's been three years since I started this blog. Three years ago today. So to honor that, I'm going to monitor the first ever time period I monitored, which is from now until 7:38. I'm a bit on the historical side, you can say. Anyway, as we all know, Thanksgiving is tomorrow. I will blog very miminally, as I'll be in church, then I'll be with my family for a big Thanksgiving dinner. I'll probably blog for up to an hour.

Three Years Later...

Good morning, all. Wow. I can't believe it. It's been three years since I started this blog. It was three years ago on this date, the 23rd. I don't have too much to say about it, but I do remember it. I had to chose a blog layout, then decide how I was going to cover crime in the area and what kind of details I was going to cover. Let's just say in the last three years, this blog has it's ups and downs. More ups though. I'm just thankful to have all of you as readers. I want to especially thank my loyal readers for all of this time that you've been reading. I don't have enough words to say. Thank you, thank you. May everyone have a great day, and I will continue to do this service for all of you.


Good morning, everyone. Just a friendly reminder that the CAPS Beat 1433 meeting is tonight, beginning at 6:30pm. It will be held at St. Mary Of The Angel's Church at 1850 N Hermitage. For those of you unfamiliar with the area, it covers areas such as the Clybourn METRA Station area and the Walsh Park area. The official boundaries for the Beat are Armitage to the north, Wood to the west, North Ave. to the south and the Chicago River to the south.

For those of you who live on this Beat, please attend your CAPS meeting tonight. I know it's the day before Thanksgiving, but if you want to address anything with the city or CPD about crime in your area, this is your chance. It only takes an hour, and this is your last CAPS meeting for the year 2011.

Thank you,

Parker On 2535's Beat, Stove Fire On Springfield

Good morning, everyone, it's 9:37am. It's pretty unusual for me to be monitoring 25 on a Saturday morning, huh? It feels sort of weird to me. But it's no problem. Today, I'll be monitoring 25 until my dinner, then I will resume blogging on Monday. I won't be blogging tomorrow because I have some things I really need to do. Anyway, I have a couple of events I need to be at this coming week. Monday is the Avondale Neighborhood Association meeting (St. Hyacinth's at 7:00pm), and then I need to stay after school on Wednesday for a Student Government meeting. I don't like that all too much, since it's the day before Thanksgiving and everyone, including me, just wants to go home. But oh well. Well, I'll stop talking and give you all the crime report for today.

9:44am - Parker. On 2535's Beat.

10:07am - Fire. 25XX N Springfield. Stove.

12:06pm - Suspicious person. Somewhere in the area. The caller is calling from a location on Pulaski, which I won't reveal, but there is a male Hispanic in a white Toyota with a plate of K227715 who keeps following the caller. The car is parked around the corner from where the caller is.

Officers responded to a bank robbery with two men holding up the bank and taking people hostage and tying them up. Employees were also tied up. Officer Puntey, one of our wonderful officers on Afternoons who works Beat 2523, chased one of the offenders down the alley and detained him. 2520 called a 10-1 on this incident, and almost all officers from 25 and 15 went to the scene. Two offenders are in custody with none at large. No one is hurt, amazingly, although a number of ambulances and CFD personnel were called to the scene as a precaution. All officers are accounted for and are fine. Just be prepared, though. A LOT of officers are over there and there's a backlog right now in 25, so you may have to wait a while if you call 911 for the next hour or two. A great, great job to all of the officers involved in this! Your work tonight is to be awarded. Be safe out there, guys. Have a good night, everyone. I'll be back Monday.

Crime Blotter For November 14, 2011

Good evening, everyone, it's 7:26pm. It's a chily night outside, but clear. It's going to get into the 30s today. Anyway, I've been thinking a lot on this, but it seems like involvement in the community has really died down this year. I know it's getting colder now, but even in the summer I noticed that. I admit I haven't been as involved as I probably should be, and I'm trying to change that for the upcoming year, but we all need to remain involved. Seriously. Because if we don't, the negative energy in this neighborhood will take over. Just my thoughts. Here's crime for a portion of this evening.
