Vandalism at Park

Sometime over the past weekend someone used a black permanent marker in the park to deface the plexiglas on the front of the bulletin board. Also the side and back of the bulletin board, one of the benches, and a trash can was also marked up. It appears that someone was making random figures and doodling not relating to any particular subject. Members of the CSBTS Civic League have painted the bulletin board and replaced the Plexiglas.
 
Someone must know who is responsible for this.  It is obvious that some individuals do not have any respect for property belonging to others. Parents, please remind all members of your family that use the park to please help us keep the park clean and orderly and to report anyone deliberately doing any damage. The park is for all of us to enjoy.
 
 
Please remember to call 911 if you see a crime in action and call 385-5000, option #1,  to report crimes after they have occurred or to report any suspicious activity.

Lock your cars! (Unlocked cars, items stolen)

Last night, Sat 4/5 or early Sun 4/6, at lease two vehicles were entered and had things stolen.  One was on the Bayside of Wake Forest St. where a cell phone was taken.  The second was on Bayberry St. (landside, near Poincianna) and 2 skateboards were stolen. They were both unlocked and the police were called.  I spoke to one officer who said there have been many reports city-wide about cars being entered that are left unlocked.  She asked for me to remind everyone, “Please lock your cars!!!” If anyone has any information on either of these thefts, please call the police.
 

Please remember to call 911 if you see a crime in action and call 385-5000 to report crimes after they have occurred or to report any suspicious activity.

Do you know the owner: white fluffy dog & black pit/lab dog

This morning (Sunday, Jan 13) at approx 8:15, a resident from Wake Forest St. was bitten by a dog in First Landing Park. The owner of the dog refused to give any information about herself or her dog except that the dog had a rabies shot.  The resident went to the ER, had stitches, and will now have to undergo a series of rabies shots due to not being able to verify that the dog has been vaccinated. 

We’d like to identify the owner of the dogs: a woman described as white, blonde, approx. 5″8″, 35-40 years old and approx. 140 lbs.  The dogs are (1) white fluffy type, 50-60 lbs, (2) the one that bit is an older black pit bull/lab mix.  She told the victim that this dog has bitten before.  The resident has filed reports with the police, animal control and the Park Ranger.  If anyone knows who this woman is, please call Rebecca Lowe, 227-5642 or Ranger John Elliott, First Landing State Park at 412-2333.
