Please Be Aware

15 posts in this topic

Last Thursday my co-worker who lives right next door to my parents had an attempted break-in on her house. Whomever did it, got away leaving little evidence available to police. They are even taking the time two wipe their fingerprints from the scene. This is the 3rd attempt in the past 2 weeks in Gaylord. The previous 2 were "successful", but they broke glass at her place, so they quickly wiped the area clean and took off. Thus far they have targeted "nicer" homes with elderly or single people living in the homes. And it appears they make their attempts during the daytime when people are off to work.

There were subtle signs of their presence prior to their attempt. Pebbles from a planter next to her house were on the concrete patio 2 consecutive days, but she didn't think anything of it....just swept them away. She also had a plant alongside her house that was trampled a little bit, but again, she didn't think much of it.

There was also a break-in or two over in Winthrop earlier this year (just 7 miles west of Gaylord). If it's the same guys, they are hitting area towns a few times and moving on. Please be aware and conscious of anything or anyone that appears out of place. I know this posting is a shot in the dark and will likely not happen to any of you, but that's what my neighbor thought too. Since Thursday, she hasn't hardly had a wink of sleep at night (she's about 62 and widowed). My parents are on alert too. And being they only live 1.5 blocks from me, I'm on the alert a bit too with proper "defense" measures in place.

Supposedly, there is a grey suv involved in some of these cases.

Thank you.

All i have to say is that people need to grow up. Hopefully they get busted.

Hopefully they'll end up at the wrong house and will get a 45 or shotgun stuck in their face. That will make them re-evaluate their situation real quick.

I live in Winthrop and know of this situation. Same scenario. Older person and during the day.There was a write up in our local paper regarding this. Apparently it was a hispanic gentleman that they are looking for. The SUV is the same also.

      As most people know there has been some recent incidents out on the ice with people falling through.  Monday two gentlemen fell through on wheelers on HOL.  One of the gentlemen is Dave Genz's brother and since they have a cabin up there I'm sure he has been on the lake more then one time.  Then on Tuesday someone fell through down by Dent on one of the Silent Lakes.  A buddy of mine was on a lake by Frazee yesterday afternoon and even though there was 12" of ice he was able to get through the ice with one hit of his spud bar.  Everyone PLEASE PLEASE be careful out there.  This ice is getting eaten up quickly!  I lost a class mate of mine when he fell through the ice trying to rescue his dog so please just take the time and stay safe.  Don't forget your rope, Spud Bar, and a life jacket if you MUST scratch that last itch!

      No boat this year.  Just wondering if there are fish to be caught from the shoreline along Lock and Dam 5 above Bass Camp.   Seems like a nice place to fish.  Any input if it would be worth the drive
