Hello Corbett Residents and Affiliates,
This is the April Corbett crime log (yes, itís a month late). The police and fire agencies in the metro area transferred over to a new dispatching system and there were a few glitches along the way. The May crime log should be out within the next day or two.

This past month (May) weíve seen a rise in metal theft. Iíve spoken with a local scrap yard and itís not uncommon for a scrapper to make $100 or more on a pickup truck load of scrap metal. Weíve had reports that some scrappers contact the homeowner and ask permission to remove scrap metal. On other occasions some victims didnít realize they were a theft victim until days later. The metal may be true scrap that has no other purpose or it may be a very costly item to replace.
One citizen spooked a would-be scrapper the day after his metal had been stolen from his shop. The scrapper quickly made a U-turn when he realized the shop owner was in the building.
Please report this type of suspicious activity to either 911 or the non-emergency#- 503-823-3333. You may also leave me a message at my voicemail.* BELOW ARE PDFs of both the crime log report AND a metal theft informational brochure *
