Recently, thieves stole gas from five local vehicles. They didn’t just siphon the gas; in some cases they did more damage by drilling holes in the gas tanks. The vehicles were on NE Gertz Road, between NE 13th Avenue and NE Levee Road. Please report even “small” crimes to the police. This helps them plan their coverage in an area and it increases the accuracy of crime stat websites that many people check for local issues.
