Halloween Poetry Project

19th Ward Break-ins

On Tuesday, October 4th my daughter's car was broken into in the driveway.  I was parked behind her and they tried to break into mind but couldn't get in.  They stole an iPod and some other items out of the car.  We are at 643 Post Avenue, so burglaries are still occurring in our area.
