Good morning, everyone, it's 8:24am. It's a mostly sunny morning with temps around 80. Today will get cloudy and it'll storm, though, with temps getting into the mid 90s. I'm monitoring 25 today, and actually, will be monitoring 25 until Thursday. The only thing I'm really doing this week, other than being here, is attending my CAPS Beat meeting on Wednesday evening. This is Beat 2523's meeting, which is being held at Copernicus, I believe. The Beat Facilitator was telling me last week that we're not able to meet there anymore, but I haven't heard anything else, so I assume we're still meeting there on Wednesday. Meeting starts at 6:30pm, promptly. Those of you who live on the 2900 block of Ridgeway or 3600 Oakdale, you need to be there. With that said, here's crime for today.
