12/7 (Reported on by Falls resident Heather Sparks)
Car vandalism
3300 block Ainslie
Hey neighbors! Just a heads up that some pretty messed up vandalism and (possible) harassment is going on. One of our neighbors that lives on Henry Ave came out to their car, which they’d parked on Ainslie just off Henry, and discovered the rear window had been smashed in. The neighbor reports nothing was stolen nor was there any sign of a brick or other heavy object. While he was calling the police to file a report, another neighbor mentioned that someone has been leaving notes on cars telling the owners to not park on Ainslie.

Please keep an eye out for any strange activity. If you don’t already have security cameras, I suggest you see if your home security company offers such an option. I’d hate to think that a fellow Fallser did this, but I also hate to think that this was random. Let’s be good neighbors!
