The dog park across the street from Holmes Lake can be a fun place to take your dogs to give them some off-leash exercise. I have been here hundreds of times. Thursday was not a pleasant visit, however.
While there, someone bashed in my car window and stole my purse, which contained $100 and numerous credit and debit cards that the thieves used to buy $2,500 worth of stuff. The police say the dog park has been a prime target for such crimes lately.
Never would I have thought that on a busy street like 70th Street something like this would happen. I want to urge all those who go to the dog park to be careful about what they leave in their car. I wouldn’t want the same thing to happen to you.
