Is tuesday March is 1980 single copy 15 cents rash of burglaries plagues watch Hill by Brian Macconnell staff writer concerns about a recent rash of burglaries and robberies in their area Drew watch Hill residents to a meeting thursday night with Anderson township trustee Thomas Taylor and officials of the Hamilton county sheriffs department. In january and february according to department statistics 63 robberies and burglaries have occurred in the township with several in the watch Hill neighbourhood. Inspector Elmer Reis and detective capt. Herbert Vogel of the sheriff s department assured the watch Hill residents that patrol activity and activity by unmarked vehicles was being stepped up in the area. Besides increased efforts by the police Reis and Vogel also urged area residents to report any suspicious activity to the sheriffs department. A we have to have your help to Stop this kind of thing a Reis said. A if we Don t have people reporting what they see we re in bad shape. A Vogel said detectives in unmarked cars had cruised in the area and sat in front of Homes but no one had reported their presence.

A we know that things get messed up sometimes with our Reis said. A civilians employed by the county commissioners Man the system and they Don t always give us things the Way we would like them. We have had problems at times getting All our one reason for the increase in the burglaries and robberies in the area the officials speculated was the opening of the Combs Hehl Bridge into Kentucky. A a the Bridge definitely makes the neighbourhood More Reis said. A a done to get me wrong we can t blame this Only on that Bridge. But that May be one of the reasons.
