Tires Slashed

I noticed on the CPD reports about “Criminal Damaging” reports.  Upon checking that report I found several people on Glouchester and surrounding areas had reported their tires slashed.

IF ANYONE HAS ANY INFORMATION ON WHO MIGHT HAVE COMMITTED THIS CRIME PLEASE CALL THE COLUMBUS POLICE IMMEDIATELY. 

The following is from a resident:  On Wednesday, 6/21/17 between 10pm & 6am on 6/22/17 their were multiple tires slashed on vehicles on Sharon Woods @ Brookhurst and around to Nobleshire, Wallbridge, Atterbury & Kennerdown.

If you have camera’s please check the footage for any suspicious behavior and report it immediately.

Don’t Forget to Join the Sharon Woods Civic Association!

Have you ever wondered who takes care of the entrances to our neighborhood, like the beautiful islands at the corner of 161 & Sharon Woods Blvd.? Believe or not it is not done by the City of Columbus, or by elves at night! All of this work is done by volunteers who live in the neighborhood, and who are a very important part of the Sharon Woods Civic Association. You might be surprised to find out what all your civic association does to help keep Sharon Woods a great place to live.

By now you should have received the latest edition of our neighborhood newsletter, The Gatepost. If you did not receive one you can find a copy of it on this web site in an earlier post.

Just a reminder that June is our membership drive month. So, please complete the application in The Gatepost to either renew your membership or join for the coming year (and send it in soon). It is a bargain!

As always, thank you for your support!

Notes from the SWCA Meeting on June 1st.
