The 12South Neighborhood Association e-mail list buzzed today with reports of two break-ins in their neighborhood over the past few days.
On Thursday night between 10:00 and midnight, an intruder or intruders broke down the front door of a house on Vaulx Lane and stole most of the electronics while no one was home.
On Friday night shortly before 10:00 p.m., an intruder or intruders broke down "the entire front door" of a house on the corner of Lealand and Kirkwood. In this case, the resident was home alone and she ran out of the back door and fled to a neighbor's house. No information is available on whether anything was stolen.
The criminal or criminals in both of these cases look brazen in breaking down the front door and in one case in doing so with the victim at home.
