Monday night, a bicyclist rode into the side of a vehicle in the area of Maryland Ave., east of N. Meramec. Don't forget we're sharing the road!

Tuesday, three male subjects stole Tide laundry detergent from Walgreens. They were last seen driving a maroon pickup truck eastbound on Clayton Rd.
Wednesday, a resident reported she sold a piece of jewelry on online. She shipped the item to the buyer after receiving an email advising the payment had been transferred to her through Pay Pal. She later discovered the email was fraudulent and she never received payment.
Thursday, a resident in the 6400 block of Alamo reported a bicycle was stolen overnight.
Thursday night, a male subject was observed pushing a shopping cart full of paper towels and laundry detergent in the 6700 block of Clayton Rd. Investigation revealed he had shoplifted the items from Walgreens.
Saturday night, a bicycle was stolen from the valet area of the Ritz Carlton. A male subject was later located with the bicycle and he admitted to taking it from the hotel without consent.
Sunday, a resident in the 8100 block of Stratford reported ordering a passport cover from Amazon. When the package was delivered she discovered a passport belonging to someone else inside.
You may have noticed we didn’t have any reports of larcenies from unlocked vehicles. However, multiple doors and windows were found unsecured while officers were checking residences on our vacation watch list. Searches of the properties revealed everything to be in order. It is believed the residents accidently left the doors and windows unsecured.
Don't forget your #9pmroutine of securing your vehicles and homes! Also, if you let us know when you’ll be out of town we’ll add you to our vacation check list and help you eliminate the stress of wondering if your home is safe while you’re gone. We’ll even wave to you on your security cameras!
