  1. Also a warning for Elysian Valley residents. There is a crew cutting out catalytic converters from cars (Honda) in a grey or white van with a second lookout car. It takes them minutes and there off.

  2. Odd that the auto thefts that occurred on McCollum don’t show on the map, nor the recent house break-ins. Their data seems incomplete.
