From the sounds of it with what was taken it sounds like juveniles doing a majority of them.
John Hormon April 13, 2012 at 04:30 PM
I do not see all the break in from the past month I know of one on St. Nicholas and one on the other street done by 3 Black Male JUV who were caught and another set of JUV breaking in to home at the same time same day on St. Nicholas ?
Aja J. Junior (Editor) April 13, 2012 at 04:36 PM
The St. Nicholas break-in is indicated in our reports and on the map currently, and this is all of the information from police reports that we've received.
C. Hormon April 17, 2012 at 06:52 PM
I do not see the Derhake at St Mathews where the 3 were caught breaking into the house and 5 police cars were in front of the house that day match 2 ?
Aja J. Junior (Editor) April 17, 2012 at 08:56 PM
We didn't receive any information from the police department regarding this. The only one we have is for St. Nicholas.
stacey April 17, 2012 at 10:35 PM
I live on St. Matthew (well super close), and didn't see or hear anything. Possibly I wasn't home, but how scary! What time of say was it, and were the suspects caught? Thanks for the heads up!
stacey April 18, 2012 at 02:31 AM
I'm also a little confused/uneducated about 1st & 2nd degree charges? What makes the difference? Being armed? While I can google the info, I thought maybe it'd be a good idea to possibly write a short article on the differences becuase others may not know either :) To me the ones close to my home look as thought teenagers were involved, but would make a big difference if they were armed or if an adult was armed, or actually pulled a gun on a homeowner, Just an idea. And, maybe some current info on which neighborhoods have or do not have neighborhood watch programs and compare them w/these and future crimes to see if something else needs to be done or changes made. I thought there would be meetings, and someone "in charge" of their neighborhood who residents would know? I'm just so tired of not fighting back, and to be honest I truely wonder if every crime is being reported to you, Aja, or any of us?? I know something has been going on around my area because the amount of officers has doubled and more police activity lately. That's all I wanted to say becuase we can FIGHT back but even though one person can make a change there is always POWER in NUMBERS :)
Joseph Burgoon April 25, 2012 at 02:59 AM
lst degree burglary occurs when someone is in the residence when it is broken into and entered. 2nd degree burglary occurs when someone breaks into a residence and no one is home.
John Hormon May 05, 2012 at 12:28 PM
They tried to break into the home next to the one on St. Nicholas LN and had kicked in the door on Derhake almost across the street as the crow would fly. They 3 that were caught on Derhake were the 3 that tried to kick in the door on St. Nicholas LN as IDed by the person who saw them try to kick the door in. Does not surprise me nothing reference to Derhake from police it is how they WRITE there report just like St. Louis City Police a couple years back. It is all in the wording of the report on what you get as info .
Jason Charney May 05, 2012 at 08:24 PM
Statistically, most burglars live within a mile of the place they intend to rob. Also, do you guys report crime incidients that happen elsewhere in North St. Louis County?
Aja J. Junior (Editor) May 06, 2012 at 04:01 PM
These burglaries are only for the ones that have happened in Florissant only. However, we do report some North County incidents on the site as they're sent our way.
John May 19, 2012 at 07:50 PM
I know there was a burglary in April or May on Mullanphy.
Paul May 20, 2012 at 12:10 PM
I would like to thank our police department for all their hard work in solving these crimes.
Ethan Chankin May 20, 2012 at 02:06 PM
It's how I think weird how they rob so much. It's like to me they want to or are trying to get caught of how many times the'ved robed stores.
J wolff May 24, 2012 at 06:27 PM
I thought it was derhake after they broke in on St. Nicholas lane.
stacey August 27, 2012 at 03:38 PM
THANKS for all the info! As much as it sux to hear it all, I'm glad to be able to know. so much seems to be kept "hush hush" and to me that puts us citizens in danger. I know FPD do all they can to solve these crimes, however Aja, I was wondering if you get a report on any of the above incidents where any suspects were caught? I don't hear much about that part, and would feel a lot better knowing at least one of these suspects are behind bars. Or even a description? So many people walk my neighborhood I try to keep track of any suspicious activities however a physical description would be helpful. I know most police dep don't take these "small" incidents too seriously as no one was reported assualted or shot. However, I can speak for my family only by saying "We don't have much in our home, but what we do have, we have worked our tails off for". I understand times are rough, and we have had to seek assistance before, but still once a family has been robbed, it's not just material things they've lost, it's also their "safe" feeling and sentimental things too. We struggle to make a house payment, and to hear or feel as though all our hard earned money doesn't even keep us safe is upsetting. We keep all doors/windows/cars locked 24/7. Also curious to know the most common entry way these criminals use to rob houses? Regardless, I applaud you and this site, because these ARE issues we need to know.
Aja J. Junior (Editor) August 27, 2012 at 03:59 PM
Stacey: Thanks so much fo the suggestion. As you might notice, we post crime reports of those arrested as we get them as well, but I definitely don't think it'd be a problem to ask for a description of suspects as well as continue to follow up on arrests.
Sonny Pondrom September 22, 2012 at 02:21 PM
One of the best ways to keep your neighborhood safe is to join the Florissant Neighborhood Watch Program. You can sign in at the Florissant Neighborhood Watch Group at: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/neighborhoodwatch_FlorissantMo/join You can get advice on how to sign up neighbors and then hold a Neighborhood Watch party. These "meet and greet" parties give neighbors an opportunity to recognize each other so the suspicious activities can more easily be reported to the police. Fall is a good season for an out-door party.
Dana Wiele September 22, 2012 at 04:13 PM
What is frightening is there are many more burglaries that are NOT on this map. My house on Mullanphy was broken into on April 3 (during that two week period between April 1 & 14 where none are listed). At least one other was burglarized during that time period. Her home was broken into on April 5 on Flordawn. The Florissant Police did do a great job apprehending the man (not juvenile) who broke into our homes and we got most of our costume jewelry back. Unfortunately our good jewelry was melted down at a gold buying place before it could be recovered. Thank you for a job well done Florissant Detectives. About 2 weeks after my house was burglarized my camper was ransacked. I'm sure this time it was a juvenile. Only a bottle of alcohol was taken. I don't think the officer even wrote a report since the camper was unlocked and nothing major was stolen.
Nancy Barber September 23, 2012 at 03:23 AM
Maybe the city should stop spying on people and use all that money to hire at least one, perhaps two more police officers. I'd certainly feel less threatened and much safer.
Erika Malone September 24, 2012 at 01:31 PM
I live in unincorporated North County next to Black Jack(63033). Is there an online crime report available in that area? I am also interested in forming a neighborhood wathc in my area is there anyone living in that area interested in participating?
Erika Malone September 24, 2012 at 02:02 PM
Similr incident at my home in unincorporated North County(63033) . It was April of 2011 when our home was burglarized. The door was kicked and the criminals ran into our home to take as much as they could before the alarm sounded. They also tried to disable the alarm panel by smashing it. The alarm company calls this type of burglary a "smash and grab" where 2-3 criminals break in your home aware that you have an alarm system that may give them a 30-second count down prior to the alarm going off so they go about your home to steal what they can in 30 seconds. The criminals only got some costume jewelry. We have modified the alarm to go off as soon as a door opens in away mode. The police offier said they were looking for video games consoles, ipads, laptops..those types of items they can take quickly and pawn. We also had out shed burglarized of a small smoker and some small lawn equiment. I reall would like to form a neighborhood watch to deter crime in our beautiful North County neighborhoods.
Sonny Pondrom October 06, 2012 at 12:27 PM
Nancy - Maybe you should become a "block captain" and start a Neighborhood Watch program with your neighbors.
K October 06, 2012 at 01:00 PM
Several people have asked how to get this information for unincorporated St. Louis County. It's all on the St. Louis County Police's website. The County Police has also established Neighborhood Policing Officers (NPOs) for each district. If you contact them, they will put you in touch with the appropriate officer based on your residence and add you to an e-mail list. Crime map for north precinct: http://maps.stlouisco.com/police/beta/?xg=PCT1 Neighborhood Policing information: http://www.stlouisco.com/LawandPublicSafety/PoliceDepartment/Services/NeighborhoodPolicing List of NPOs: http://www.stlouisco.com/LawandPublicSafety/PoliceDepartment/1stPrecinctNorthCounty/ContactInformationandBios I would also be interested in knowing if there is any interest in forming a Neighborhood Watch in unincorporated St. Louis county.
K October 06, 2012 at 01:18 PM
Looks like for the month of September, the vast majority of crime in the north precinct happened in the areas of Bellefontaine Neighbors, Riverview, and Moline Acres.
Becky Ingmire October 20, 2012 at 03:50 PM
Ok I'm going to blow the whistle on a Florissant cop. I live behind Patterson Plaza and there is a cop that sits in his car behind the dumpsters so he can't be seen. He sits there for hours. He gets a call goes to it and then comes back and sits for a few more hours. I have scanner and I watch when he gets called out and when he says 10-8 here he back sitting again.How is this protecting our streets???
Erika Malone October 22, 2012 at 05:13 PM
Where is Paddock Plaza? Is that the plaza by the Bob Evans?
Steve Gray May 23, 2013 at 02:22 PM
Theres a guy with the Greater North County Chamber of Commerce in Florissant that works at a security company that will set up a free security system for Florissant residents. The email for the Chamber is carolyn@greaternorthcountychamber.com
