Crime in the Footprint
Criminals, it's become apparent, are targeting the rapidly de-populating VA Footprint. And that comes even as the NOPD has stepped up patrols of the area.
Last evening, I encountered a man next to his van, its windows broken. A police office filled out a report in a squad car just behind. The man, a member of a band, had multiple keyboards and speakers stolen after deciding he was in no position to drive home from Deutsches Haus on Saturday night.
Crews also moved to secure this artist's home at 2310 - after it was burglarized for the third time, according to a neighbor. The house is one of four being considered for moving intra-site by the VA for use in the final complex.
