Harlowe anti-crime meeting set for tonight

Residents of the Harlowe area east of Havelock will gather at the Godette Comminity Center at 7pm, Monday, 1/24/11. to discuss ways to combat crime in their area.

Residents are tired of feeling like hostages in their own homes because of break-ins to which law enforcement often don’t respond.

Break-ins have increased over the last two years and include theft of everything from guns, cumputers and RV’s to high end tools and food from freezers.

These break-ins are being done by a local and someone know’s who is responsible but are afraid to come forward.  Some folks fear going to the meeting because someone may break-in while they’re gone.

Representatives from all area law enforcement agencies have been invited to attend the meetings and hear resident’s concerns.

A Community Watch was discussed two years ago, but was never initiated.  It is hoped to get it started and help residents.  It is expected that law enforcement continue to investigate and make arrests as appropriate for prior break-ins.

The Godette Community Center is located on Godette School Rd. between Temples Point Rd. and Blades Rd. off NC 101.
