MPD Alert: Attention Residents regarding Copper Pipe Thefts‏

Fourth Precinct August 2010


The Fourth Precinct has seen a significant increase in Residential Burglaries to vacant homes where copper pipe or aluminum was taken or attempted. The map below indicates the highest concentration of these incidents.

What to keep and eye out for:

· Most burglars tend to be males between 30-50 years old
· Trucks and or cars parked or driving down alleys loaded with metal piping and or other household appliances.
· Suspects will walk up to the spigot (water connection) on the side of the house and pull on it to see if the copper pipe connection is loose indicting that the copper pipe has already been removed.
· A vacant house has an open door or window.
· The sound of breaking glass or other loud noises.
· You smell gas or see water coming from a house.
· Someone waiting or loitering in front or around a vacant house.
· A strange, occupied car in your alley or on the street.
· A person going door-to-door in a residential area, especially if one or more persons go to the rear of the home.

Call 911 immediately if you see any of the above.

Residents are the Key to Prevention.

Change in polling place location for the Primary - Ward 5-Precinct 8 (Jordan)

Polling Place change for Ward 5-Precinct 8

River of Life Church becomes a double polling place for 5-8 and 5-10

August 2, 2010 (MINNEAPOLIS). The Minneapolis Office of Elections has designated River of Life Lutheran Church (in the gym) at 2200 Fremont Ave N, Mpls MN, 55411 as the new polling place for that Ward 5-Precinct 8 for both the Primary and the General election. Election officials were notified that a recent inspection found the building that had been designated as a polling place for Ward 5 Precinct 8 is currently unusable as a polling place.

River of Life Church is outside of the precinct but is nearby and also serves as the polling place for Ward 5 Precinct 10.

The Hennepin County Elections office will send a postcard to all registered voters in the precinct alerting them to the change. Signs at the former polling place will direct voters to the address of the new polling place.
