HPD is investigating. We live around the block from there. During the day several folks reported two female teens going door to door with different excuses of why they rang the bell. Selling magazines, "having female" issues (yep) and wanted to come in the house. One was on her cell behind her. We believe they were scoping places out for later.

PATCH: Can you find out what happened Saturday Aug, 4th around 2PM by Heather & Martin. Seemed to be a case of road rage with an also intoxicated driver in a yellow escape. Was driving on lawns and harassing a man in a red van, doing donuts in the great lakes back on Dixie. When cops showed up he took off south down Dixie. Witnessed the whole thing, pretty scary. There were kids playing in yards and everything. The idiot could of done some real damage. Haven't heard of anything else about it and REAL curious who he is and what he was really on. Drugs or alcohol for sure!!! THANKS!!

@ Geoff--I live in the Gov. Park area and two teenaged girls were arrested on a Friday afternoon (just before school let out for the summer). They were caught after they entered a home and stole some electronics. I have to wonder if it's the same pair?

Anybody have a physical description of the two teen girls, so we can be on the lookout?
Gina McAdrian August 09, 2012 at 01:25 PM
GM Thanks for the info! We will keep our outside lights on at night and keep valuables out of the cars. AND keep our doors locked.

Gina, that common sense item goes a long way in preventing some of these types of burglaries. Most of the time, they are looking for valuables AND an unlocked door for a quick grab. I don't have a description of the girls in question.

I too live near Marshfield where the burglaries took place. I was told by a neighbor that the girls who were going door-to-door on another block (not necessarily the same "group" that robbed the folks on Marshfield?) looked about 14 - 15 years old, Caucasian, wearing non descriptive clothing. Not a whole lot to go on.

I lived on Marshfield for five years (just moved away recently) and we never had problems with crimes like these. I miss the friendly neighbors there and hope they catch up with whoever is disrupting the quiet, safe landscape I remembered.
