Neighborhood Watch – Glen Avenue Alley – Attempted Break In

Melva and Wayne Wood (316 Glen Avenue) had someone try to drill out their garage door lock the other night to try to break in. Households along the 300 and 400 block of Glen that have the alley run behind them should be on the look out and be sure to report any suspicious activity to the police.

Another Incident: Kirn Park Adult Football League

All,
Another incident with the Adult Football League that plays up at Kirn Park on the weekends. After the football game on Saturday players from both teams got into a heated verbal altercation at the top of Glen and 5th Avenue. Neighbors had to call the C.B. Police as the rhetoric and threats started to escalate. The Police diffused the situation and broke up the gathering.

Kirn Park is a PUBLIC Park

All,
It has been brought to the neighborhood’s attention that the Adult Football League that plays their games up at Kirn Park on Sunday’s is telling people they could not use the park without paying $5.00. The league was told specifically last year not to try that stunt again this year. C.B. Parks and Recreations has been called and they will be looking into the matter.

If you go up to Kirn Park and anyone tries to charge you admission please politely refuse their erroneous offer. If they insist call the non-emergency number for the police to handle the matter.

Kirn Park is a public park. It is illegal to charge anyone admission

Neighborhood Watch – Police Raid/Drug Bust

All,
A neighborhood watch report from Steve Beck.

I have not seen anything about this in our local newspapers or our local news stations.

I live at 163 Glen Avenue. This is yet another incident right next door at 167 Glen.

Tuesday, June 5th, 6:00 AM, 167 Glen Avenue:

I woke up to a HUGE explosion, followed by several people yelling very loudly. When I looked out my window, there were 5 or 6 Sheriff’s department vehicles blocking off the road. There were at least 20 officers in fatigues and helmets, a few CSI officers, complete with a dog. They sent the dog inside. From what I could see, the officers brought out Danny Combs (the dad with a prosthetic leg), two of his sons, and 3 or 4 other characters I have never seen before, all of them in handcuffs.

I expected ALL OF THEM to go to jail, and maybe this would finally be over. (I have put up with this for 5 years — recall the knife fight and attempted murder in 2016.) However, when I got home yesterday Danny was back home again, repairing the front door to close up his house. He’s out on his front porch again today, working on his woodworking creations yet again. I don’t know if he is out on bail or what.

I’ve seen absolutely nothing on the local news channels, and today’s Sheriff’s report listed 3 incidents for yesterday, none about what appeared to be a drug bust next door. I have always suspected they were drug dealers, due to the constant traffic in and out of the house day and night (nobody has that many friends).

I wish I could find more information on this. Anyone charged with anything? I just want these people to be gone.

Feel free to distribute this to the neighborhood watch.

Steve Beck, 163 Glen Ave.

Crime too Close to Home

Glen Avenue was blocked off by police Wednesday night. Although the article below says police were called to the 100 block of Glen Avenue, it was specifically 167 Glen Avenue, right next door to FPNA member Steven Beck (163 Glen Avenue) who forwarded this news article on WOWT.com (see link below)

Raccoon with Distemper

A raccoon in the advanced stages of distemper was seen early Tuesday morning on Park Ave. Animal Control came immediately to get the very sick animal. There is no cure and it will be euthanized. Animal Control said that the raccoon population has exploded in the east end of town and with it, distemper will also be present in a large number of them. Symptoms are: confusion, blindness, mucus discharge, or wandering aimlessly. They will also lose their fear of humans.

While raccoon distemper will not affect humans, it will be contagious to unvaccinated dogs or cats. Keep your pets away from an infected raccoon and do not handle them unless you wear gloves. Call Animal Control immediately.

Neighborhood Watch – Crime Thwarted

A crime or possible crime was thwarted in the early morning hours of August 10th in the alley behind upper Glen. About 4:40 a.m. Cindy Muschall (332 Glen Avenue) heard a metal grating noise like something was being dragged down the alley. She investigated by stepping out onto our 2nd floor balcony and saw a vehicle, A red Ford Ranger with Nebraska plates and a trailer attached parked in the alley behind 406 Glen Avenue. After a few minutes she stepped back inside, that is when she saw a man run from behind the garage at 334 Glen Avenue. The man ran off up the Alley toward 5th Avenue,
She immediately called the police, and woke me up to help. Three CBPD units arrived. I met them in the alley and gave them an account of what Cindy saw and a description of the man. In his 20’s, lite build wearing jeans and white striped shirt. The police combed the entire length of the alley to investigate any possible break-ins or tampering with garage doors or windows. They did not locate the man but the truck and trailer plates were run and it turned out to be stolen. The truck and trailer were towed away. A good reminder if you see something say something.

Police Omaha Advisory Board and Our Neighborhood Watch

All,
Mark Hansen (332 Glen Avenue) sits on the Police Advisory board. Last night at their monthly meeting requested that officers begin cruising the ally from 5th to High school. He mentioned that there have been several break ins or attempts lately and maybe a drive up and down that ally a couples times a night may prevent further activities. Along with our Neighborhood Watch emails people can contact Mark with issues to present to the Chief of Police at their monthly meetings.

Questions or concerns can be sent to mshansen2@cox.net
