A neighborhood watch alert was sent out by residents of the Lincoln-Fairview neighborhood association.
“Yesterday afternoon a man stole the wallet and keys from an elderly gentleman on Oakland Drive. The thief is a small man with small hands and was driving a small white truck with a boom over the cab. There was no advertising on the truck. He told the gentleman that he had been working up the street and offered to help with a tree. He needed to use the restroom. That is how he entered the house. Be on the Alert!!! Do not let anyone in your house unless you know them! The Police are aware of this! Again, use caution!”.
