I am posting this with permission from a neighborhood mom and member of Heights Kids Group. She sent it to the forum, but as you can imagine is feeling pretty vulnerable right now so I am not including any of her information. This is just too important not to share!
Hi! I just wanted to post this to the group just in case it can help prevent this from happening to anyone else. Last Thursday I came home with all three kids to find my backdoor wide open! I was terrified! They took EVERYTHING!!! Even our food.. Most importantly they robbed me and my family of our sense of security in our own home. :(
Anyway, [this group has] consistently been hitting about 5 houses in the area a day. They seem to be focusing in Lazybrook, Timbergrove, and Garden Oaks/Oak Forest. One of the worthless thieves was caught and arrested . I spoke with an officer today and [the thief] is out and has already hit more houses!! Absolutely ridiculous that he was able to bond out. Infuriates me!
I wanted to post all the info I have been given so if you see them please call the police as soon as possible. I saw two vehicles that fit the description this morning and they said it was them but were unable to get them. :( There is a tan Ford 150 (four door) with license plate number 35H BG9. Tan buick sedan license plate CB7 N25. There is also a light blue toyota and black SUV (possibly a Tahoe). They apparently knock on the door and when no answer they go around back and kick in the door. Please always make your presence known! The police said even if there is a car and alarm they will kick in door with no answer. Which terrified me since I NEVER answer the door. Be safe and please please please keep your eyes out for these cars! The guys that have been spotted at the door and previously arrested are hispanic males. One is about 6ft tall and 200 pounds with tattoos on his neck and sometimes wears horn rimmed glasses. There were apparently two white males that knocked for a long time on my door the day before our robbery! My neighbors said they were very insistent and aggressive with knocking. Please stay safe and keep your eyes out!
So, there you have it. All eyes on deck to find these guys before someone else has to share a story like this! In my opinion, the best neighbors are nosey neighbors.
