Please Be Aware

7 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.

Any chance they had a door to door salesmen by their house recently to this? I had one outside my house sunday afternoon, my wife was outside and he came up to her, then a police officer pulled up, she came in to the house, and the police officer took him away. Strange, I wanted to call to find out what he was hauled away for, but didnt. Maybe I should, but I dont know if they would tell me anything.

There was a young guy with a white car trying to sell me some stuff a couple weeks ago and told him I didnt want anything and he left. Did that guy have a white car too?

He was on foot, or atleast as I could tell, I didnt see any car near our block.

Those guys come by on an annual basis, and yes they've been around recently (selling cleaning supplies). I don't believe they are the culprits though.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?

      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.
