We received the following warning from a Sheafe Street resident burglarized last night for the second time in five months:
I am a North End resident of 3 years and I’m writing to ensure our community is aware of the larceny and burglary problem here in the North End. I live on Sheafe Street and my apartment has been broken into and robbed on March 23rd, 2011 and again yesterday July 7th. This is TWICE in 5 months. My roommate and I are both middle-aged professional females in our 20’s and are concerned for our safety in the North End. It is ridiculous our apartment has been broken into TWICE, the police tell us there is nothing they can do. Our landlord tell us there is nothing they can do. What does this mean for ourselves as residents? We cannot be protected?! All of our meaningful, significant personal belongings have now been stolen. My second laptop was stolen yesterday, we were officially cleaned out of all our jewelry, ipods, camera’s…you name it. We have nothing left. Yes, possessions can be replaced….but our privacy and security is jeopardized.
Please warn the neighborhood and spread the word to others so MAYBE someone can start doing something about this.
Ed: At last night’s public safety meeting, it was reported that there were 3 North End / Waterfront burglaries in June 2011 as compared to 14 in March, 5 in April and 12 in May.
