Crime Update 6/20

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Several neighbors have reported vandalism along Hollyoak Drive, between Bradley Boulevard and Deepwell Drive, about 3 PM, Friday, June 19. Three teenage boys with skateboards were seen putting large branches, blocks of concrete and boulders, and garbage from a recycle bin across Hollyoak and proceeding down Laurel Oak to Carteret. Residents had to clear roads in order for cars to proceed safely.

Neighbors are asked to be vigilant regarding recurrence of such vandalism and to report information on this kind of incident and other criminal activity to the Montgomery County Police. The number for District 1 of the local police (portion of West Bradley community west of Seven Locks Road) is 240-773-6070. As always, West Bradley Citizens’ Association also welcomes reports of local concerns and will work with residents to take appropriate action.
