1) Crime Alert: Neighbors just notified us of the break-in burglary that occurred at their home on Glennon Drive during the night of May 9. The burglar appears to have jimmied the garage door and basement door and entered the home while the residents were asleep. Any information that anyone can provide should be provided to the police. Let them (and West Bradley) know as well if any other incidents have occurred recently in our community.
