Smash and grab robberies in loft district

There were a number of car windows broken out (and contents taken) in the area around 22nd Street and Locust, and 20th Street and Delmar sometime overnight.  Police say these crimes are on the rise.  Regulars in the loft district say they see it all the time.

And not just in the loft district.  Our own news car was hit on Oakland and Hampton in September.  Police do have fourteen officers assigned to a roving patrol to combat this crime.  They also say that they keep arresting the same culprits over and over.  I've asked them for some names to check and see why the same culprits are free to repeat their crimes.  I'll keep you posted.
