Got this news from the alderman's office last night:
Yesterday, two African American males were arrested in the area while stealing UPS packages from the front porch of two homes. This holiday season, please be mindful of having items delivered to your home and left unsupervised on your porch. If you cannot be home when a package is set to be delivered, consider having your items sent to a friend or neighbor who is available to receive them. Remember to call 9-1-1 to report ANY suspicious activity and encourage your neighbors to do so as well.
Don't forget to shop locally this holiday season - many local merchants are offering Deals of the Day during the month of December. For a complete list of Deals of the Day, please visit www.bapa.org.
