Unusual request on my neighbourhood forum. I hope it is well meant.

66819 - Foxes

We have a family of foxes living in our garden: a mum and 8 cubs. They're very cute, but they're also destroying our garden and, since we have a toddler who likes to explore outdoors, we're not that keen on having them around.

Does anybody know of anyone, or a company, who can help relocate them?

Two convicted pedos that served time were spotted round our way. A self described pedo hunter set up a facebook page. Anyway, the stupid cunts ended up in south Armagh, well know IRA country. So they were duely, caught by the "locals" given a kicking, tarred and feathered.

There was a rather large wooded patch of ground we pass everyday on our way to the station. Among some cedar and cottonwoods there was a small grove of these huge and noble zelkova (an Asian tree of the elm family, often cultivated as an ornamental, for its timber, or as a bonsai tree) and it's all be sawn down. Apparently Dad died and Junior has some plans for the land.

Our city's local police department sends out a police blotter every couple days. Here's the one from yesterday and since Sunday.

Community: Police Patrol Blotter for Tuesday, May 8, 2018


Incidents 304, Reports 34

#015 Residential Burglary
A residential burglary occurred on Bedford St. at approximately 12:40 p.m. A witness watched as three suspects knocked on a door and then forced entry into the home after receiving no answer. The witness called police and the suspects fled the area in a newer black Dodge truck with a partial last 3 digits similar to ****652.

#016 Possession of a Controlled Substance
Officer R. Smith conducted a traffic stop and contacted a 26 year old adult male and a 24 year old male. A records check showed the 26 year old had a non-extraditable Felony DUI Warrant out of Washington State. The 24 year old was on active probation and a probation search revealed he was in possession of a controlled substance. Both were arrested and transported.

#20 Chain Snatch Robbery
Officer Gourley conducted a Chain Snatch Robbery Investigation in the 4100 block of Alder Ave which occurred at 1:40 p.m. The victim out of fear, allowed some time to pass before calling FPD to report this crime. Video footage located depicts the suspect knocking victim to the ground while forcefully attempting to rip her chain from her neck. Suspect then crouches at the downed victim and is able to remove the chain before running off. Suspect Description: Black male adult in his 40's, wearing a black baseball cap, dark jacket, and light colored pants.

Detectives have been assigned to this investigation and are looking into whether this same suspect is responsible for other recent local chain snatch robberies.

Officers Rose and Bordy respond to a report of a group drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana in the Niles Community Park area. A 43 year old male is contacted and records check shows he is on parole and has an active warrant for parole violation of weapons and explosives possession. Officer Rose transported the male to Santa Rita Jail for booking.

There was a large stand of trees we pass daily on our way to the station including cherry, cottonwood, cedar, zelkova and chestnut and they've all been sawed down. Apparently the owner died and his son has other plans for the land, like another high-rise condo or a parking lot.
