Wilson Hotel

I had to work late this evening, so I was unable to listen, but on my
walk home I noticed three cop cars and four bicycle units in front of
the Wilson Hotel.

The police were pulling guys out of the hotel in handcuffs. From what
I overheard they are part of a robbery ring. One was in possesion of a
tv from a recent robbery and the others looked like they had some
stolen shoes from various stores.

As I type this four more patrol cars have arrived and it looks as
though they are about to go in and toss the place.

Apparently the catylist for this was a shoplifter at Payless shoes who
fled directly to the Hotel.

Upon entry to the Hotel they encountered a fight in progress.
Ambulances arrived a knife was involved and their was a stabbing.

Police have apprehended the offenders.

Saturday Rally=Another Success














If Helen thinks that her "constituents" don't care, she is hugely mistaken. Today's rally was yet another step in taking back Uptown.

Of course, she wasn't around to address what she's been avoiding, and her baseball bat-wielding staff told at least one concerned citizen to leave immediately.

Despite the absurd 'non-response,' we walked home with smiles on our faces knowing that we did the right thing. And we shall continue to do the right thing...

Thanks to all - and stay tuned for the next rally!

Our First Step

The 'Meet and Greet' shall go on as originally planned from 1-3pm on Saturday. Nothing fancy - very simple. We put this idea in place in the last few days and see no need for tailoring to accommodate those that might find it offensive or 'politically-incorrect.'

We'll be there to shake hands and see faces that care about making our neighborhood better, and hopefully establish a foundation that will support more-elaborate events in the months to come. We hope to see you there.

Taking Back Sunnyside Mall

'Taking Back Sunnyside Mall' needs to happen now, before the summer
rolls in and it becomes even harder to change behavior that will most
certainly take a turn for the worse.

Folks - we need to take action and take it now.

If you want to help, please email us at

uptowncrimeblotter@gmail.com

We will create an email distribution list. We will listen to ideas. We
will organize the ideas and the people interested in taking back this
area of our neighborhood. We shall have event after event and do what it
takes to win this battle.

It can be done.

The bad guys know each other. The good guys do not know each other, and
this neighborhood is starving for this type of activity.

Send your comments ideas and suggestions, and keep them coming. We will
get an event together in the next 10 days.

Person Shot

4526 Sheridan man in the lobby of the building, with gunshot wound to the leg. Officer reports that he got hit pretty good and they need an ambulance. All the victim can tell the officers is that there were 5 black males shot him and ran. Police are looking through the yards right now to see if the gun got pitched. They also mention the possibility that the guy may have shot himself by accident.

Police are looking for 5 or 6 Black males one was short with braids with a red hoodie. The suspect walked up to the victim and asked him what he was about then shot him in the thigh. The victim is not being very cooperative with the Police. Area three detectives are responding to the victim at Masonic Hospital and the crime scene. The crime scene was described as starting at 1012 Sunnyside and heading north with a very pronounced blood trail.

Body of a Person Found In Montrose Harbor

At 8:07 a citizen who was fishing at Montrose Harbor flagged down a patrol officer and reported that he thought he saw the body of a person floating just off the Montrose Harbor concrete. at approximately 8:11 the Officer confirmed that it was indeed a floater in the water the Marine unit was called and fire department is on the way they said that this is protocol for this type of situatiuon. The detectives bureau was notified. Fire department has just hooked onto the body but was asked to not get involved and release the body as it could be a possible homicide and if so they do not want to CFD to contaminate the crime scene.

The scene is approximately 50 yards south of the bird sanctuary.

Police have closed off the road at the Bait shop. They mentioned that the media may attempt to get there on foot and are to be kept far from the scene. The Detectives do not want anyone near the scene, police have been advised to start moving the fisherman back to their cars, and asking them to find another place to fish this evening.

9:36 Police have pulled the body out of the water, bagged it and are now transporting it.

We WILL Post Today

The weather is just too nice today to be tied-down posting. Look for
posts after dark. We appreciate your patience.

If you have not been out yet today, I highly recommend it. This is the
best Saturday of the year so far. If you are looking for something to
do, why not participate in uptownupdate's graffiti challenge? Grab
your digital camera and go for a walk, snap photos of graffiti, and
send them to uptownupdate@hotmail.com

While you are sending him the photos you should also congratulate him
on his recent accolades -he works hard to keep us all informed.


Defense for Posting the Photos

While the details for some of these offenders last arrest may seem
mundane to some readers, the truth is that the full story behind each
of these guys is too lengthy to explain. These guys have sheets - some
of them numbering over 40 other arrests - and these are just for the
crimes in which they were caught. We are not posting photos of people who
made a harmless bad decision that did not impact anyone.

What we are doing is simply making it easier for the good guys to
recognize the bad guys. Criminals need the protection of remaining
invisible to their prey. It is this 'cloak of invisibility' that allows
them to continue to operate in an area.

If the bad guys lose their protective cloak and become known in an
area it becomes neccessary for them to move somewhere else.

Knowledge can be a very powerful crime fighting tool. You will also
notice that this site will not editorialize on any of the facts that
we post. We simply report what has happened. We respect all of our
readers views and opinions and have not moderated any of the comments.
We are sorry that some may find portions of the content objectionable;
however, we have not posted anything that is not the truth.
