Must Be Hog-Killing Time in Nebraska

A fraud victim from the 14200 block of NE 171st Street reported that someone had tried to use her social security number to claim unemployment benefits in Nebraska.  Famous as the birthplace of Kool-Aid and the Reuben Sandwich, those cornhuskers can now claim fraud among their many noteworthy achievements.

Unlocked Cars = Donated Goodies

In three separate incidents, trusting souls left their vehicles unlocked and unsavory souls helped themselves:

Victim #1’s unlocked vehicle in the 14200 block of NE 171st Street was entered and thieves stole his sunglasses, blue tooth and debit card. The card was used at unknown locations.

Victim #2’s unlocked vehicle in the 13200 block of NE 201st Court was entered and his wallet stolen.

Victim #3’s unlocked vehicle was entered while parked at a hotel in the 14500 block of NE 145th Street and his vehicle registration, owner’s manual and insurance card were stolen from inside.

Lock it or lose it, my brothers. Lock it and maybe lose it anyway, unfortunately.   Love it?  Don’t leave it.

Sound Sleepers vs. Cat Burglars

Unknown suspect(s) entered the victim’s home in the 12400 block of NE154th Place through an open window while they slept and stole computers, wallets, cash, cameras and cell phones from different rooms in the house. The feline filchers left no paw prints or other clues behind.

Oh No!  Not my Car!

Car vandals were out in force this past week, with two separate incidents:

Unknown suspects damaged a vehicle’s windshield with rocks in the 19700 block of 131st Avenue NE.

Another victim reported that somebody had made a large scratch down the entire side of her car while it was parked in her apartment lot in the 14100 block of NE 179th Street.

Cars have feelings too, you know.  Maybe “Christine” will find her vandal and fix ’em in a Stephen King kind of way.
