Good News Burglary Down – Bad News is Armed Robbery is UP UP UP
PSA 1 is South of Bridge Street, East of the Boulevard and North of Frankford Creek and all the way to the Delaware River.
Although the police left us lonely at the December PSA meeting, they must have been out tracking down the burglars. Burglary dropped to a total of 18 in December from 36 in November. There were no homicides at all. The chart below is a summary comparing December of this year with last year.
|Aggravated Assault Firearm||2||5|
|Aggravated Assault No Firearm||19||17|
|Burglary Non Residential||7||4|
|Motor Vehicle Recovery||23||26|
|Motor Vehicle Theft||9||13|
|Robbery no Firearm||10||6|
|Theft from Vehicle||39||21|
There has already been media coverage of the armed individuals who are targeting people getting off the El at the Transportation Center. That is reflected in the 22 robberies by firearm showing for December. It always interesting to me that more stolen cars are recovered in this area than are stolen.
