At tonight's Salemtown Neighbors meeting MNPD officers told the group that so far in February no successful burglaries had occurred in the neighborhood, after 10 happened in January. One attempted commercial burglary was foiled by neighbors who called police while witnessing a man trying to break into the Volcano Discount Tobacco market at 3:00 one morning. Looks like that blighted single serve market should thank its neighbors for their vigilance, and be motivated to be a better neighbor itself. Police attributed their increased patrols and the hair-trigger phone calls from S-towners for the drop in crime.
