Police chief is concerned with the number of attempted vehicle break-ins
Following a deadly shoot-out between a would-be burglar and police on Sunday morning, LPD Chief Floyd Mitchell noted a concerning trend in the neighborhood.
"The area of 98th to 82nd, from Quaker to Indiana, just since October, we have received 21 calls for service in regards to car break-ins," Mitchell said.
Chief Mitchell discussed how Lubbock citizens can stay safe.
"We always ask all of our residents to lock their cars, take their valuables out of their cars," he said. "This particular call to service came from a homeowner who had a home security camera, and we always suggest security cameras and register those security cameras with the Lubbock Police Department. "
Suspension ends today for Level nightclub
That's where someone shot and killed two people, including a teenager early New Year's Day.
The TABC suspended the club's license so investigators could search the scene for clues. Police haven't announced any leads.
This Saturday, a group of activists will brainstorm ways to slow the stem of teen violence in our area. The group also wants to figure out ways to convince TABC to crack down on clubs that don't do enough to stop kids from getting inside.
The meeting will be Saturday at 3 at the Market Street at 50th and Indiana.
