There was an attempted burglary today at 617 N Lucerne ... 2 suspects were able to open the back door however fled before they were able to steal property. A neighbor saw the suspects and was able to call police...(when they went into the backyard)They were not caught. This occured in the afternoon.
The suspects were African American in their 20s, the 3rd suspect was driving a newer BMW light grey color possible license possible starting with 6n.....he honked and the other 2 suspects ran out of the driveway.
Within the recent past there was another burglary next door at 613 N Lucerne. Also, two other attempted burglaries one at 616 N Lucerne and 631 N Lucerne.
Before all of this it was relatively quite on the block.
The neighborhood watch worked today and we are also working on getting the neighborhood watch signs as well.
The police advised reporting any suspicious persons and their activities.
FYI to LVNA90004....
