Messing with the Mailboxes

Update:  The same neighbor found El Prieto residents' mail tossed in the bushes.  She is going to deliver it to the houses.  Chances are this was someone taking mail looking for tax refunds.

A neighbor reported this morning that mailboxes were opened at some houses on El Prieto and Risinghill.  It most likely occurred last night or early this morning.

Please watch for any unusual activity.

Update Lost Dog

Update 4/26: The dog has been caught and a neighbor is holding it. Anyone interested in adopting?

Here's a picture of the terrier that has been in The Meadows the last two days.  Several neighbors have tried to coax him to come to them, but he/she's too scared.  After running through the rain yesterday, he was out this morning on El Prieto, Risinghill and Canyon Crest and appeared to be limping. 

We're starting to think that he/she was dropped off here in The Meadows.

If you can catch the dog, please do.  It seems really sweet and, at this point, tired and scared.

Lost Dog?

Just a few minutes ago, I and a neighbor saw a small brown and black terrier running down El Prieto and Aralia.  Anyone missing a dog?  The dog looked lost.

Suspicious Fire on Hollygrove

Monday night at around 8:45 p.m., a neighbor on Hollygrove reported that aapparently someone threw a fire bomb of some sort through the front window of the vacant house for sale on Hollygrove.

Another neighbor spotted it out of her kitchen window.

The Fire Department was on top of it quickly and put it out.  Doesn't look like there was a lot of damage.
Sheriffs were taking reports of a "suspicious fire."

Break-in on Canyon Crest

A break-in occurred in the 4100 block of Canyon Crest yesterday.  It happened mid-day when the residents had left the house.  They typically are home during the day, so neighbors are speculating that the house was watched.  The burglars broke in by prying the back door in. Only small items were taken and larger, more expensive items were left behind.

One neighbor also heard that another neighbor's home alarm was set off last week when someone pried open his window and he was called by the police. 

Neighbors are encouraging everyone to be on the look out for people that you don't recognise and suspicious behavior.

Updated: Police Activity on Lincoln Blocks Access to The Meadows

Updated: La Vina gates at Sunset Ridge are being kept open, per a neighbor, to allow Meadows residents to get home.

For at least the past hour, sheriffs and police have blocked Lincoln Avenue north of Altadena Drive and South of Loma Alta where an alleged shooting has occurred. It also appears the shooter is hold up in one of the houses on the west side of the street.  I also saw what I think is a "door-buster" truck being escorted up to the site.

I left The Meadows around 3:30 p.m..  Lincoln had been blocked and police had guns drawn.

Trying to return at 4:30, I and other Meadows residents could not go past a police block on Loma Alta just west of Sunset Ridge Drive.  Thanks to a friend and another resident who live in La Vina,  they opened the Sunset Ridge gate for many of us who then could drive through La Vina and down Lincoln to Canyon Crest.

Police had Lincoln blocked just south of Canyon Crest, so right now, Meadows residents can't exit.

If anyone hears of updates, please let me know.
