SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: SADDLE UP AND GONE
The resident of a home in the 4900 block of North Versailles Avenue checked for the first time in about a month on a saddle she’d owned since 1963, still valued at $350, despite its water-damaged poor condition. She discovered it missing from an unlocked, leaky shed after roofers left at 5 p.m. May 7. Part of another saddle was on the ground nearby.
Two town-owned red oak trees in the parkway on the east side of the 5000 block of Abbott Avenue lost chunks of bark [damage estimated at $500] around 10:40 p.m. when a University Park man’s 2007 Honda Odyssey van wrecked. The driver was taken to the hospital.
Missing before 10:41 a.m.: the license plate of a 2016 BMW. X5 that had been in a wreck on April 14. The owner, a resident in the 4500 block of Abbott Avenue, was uncertain whether the plate was stolen or fell off.
