There have been several Crozet break-ins recently …
“Since July 24, there have been 4 daytime burglaries in the Crozet area. In all of these incidents, the homes were unlocked, and the stolen items were easily visible through windows. All incidents involved the theft of electronic equipment. Two of the incidents occurred in Old Trail, one in Bargamin Loop (across from Old Trail), and one 1.4 miles away on Railroad Ave. There have been no incidents reported to have occurred since August 8.

I hate posting things like this. Let’s watch out for each other, Crozet.
Received Wednesday and posted on Facebook & Twitter …
I was just at the Crozet Park and spoke with an officer that had responded to a car break in that happened sometime in the parking lot there today. Back passenger window was broken out and items were taken. No other reports from The Crozet Park at this time but officer said similar occurrence today at the stores across 250 from Harris Teeter. Sounded like broken window and items in plain view taken from car ( maybe parked outside Credit Union). I tried to get a bit of info without interfering with upset victim making report. You might want to check out the details, but this might be worth an alert message to our list. Officer indicating spreading the word would be a good idea.
From the Crozet Community Association:
They need your help for an hour or two on July 5. Below is the website to sign-up to help with the Crozet Independence Day Celebration (CIDC) next Saturday, July 5, between 5PM to 10PM. There are a variety of tasks and time slots. Most of the time slots are only an hour – so there’s lots of ways to help and still enjoy the event. When you sign-up it will ask for your name, email and, optionally phone number. No one else can see your email and phone. We promise we won’t share it. It’s helpful for us to have it if something happens and we need to let you know about a last minute change.
We urge church groups, civic and neighborhood associations to sign-up. Crozet Trails Crew already has volunteered to staff one spot the whole evening! Let’s see which group can have the most volunteers!
To sign up, go here.
With your help, we can make this Crozet Independence Day celebration the best ever!
