Good morning, everyone, it's 8:43am. It's a sunny morning with temps in the mid 70s. Today's going to get to around 100, with sunshine going away and being replaced by rain and storms. Monitoring 25 again today, and then tomorrow, I'll be monitoring 25 from 6am to 6pm with a midday break at around noon or so. This is because I'm going to bed after 6pm, so I can monitor (or attempt to) 17 on Friday for 24 hours, from midnight to midnight. Anyway, the CAPS Beat meeting for 2523 is this evening. We're meeting at St. Joesph's at 6:30pm. Please be there if you live on this Beat, especially if you live on the Ridgeway blocks and on the 3600 block of Oakdale. With that, here's crime for today.
