Description

Neighborhood recycling thief has been trespassing on various properties to loot the recycling bins (and make a massive mess and a lot of noise in the process) for about a year now (possibly longer!) Have been reporting them weekly since April of 2018 but APD ignored it every time. I got so fed up with it that I decided to follow and record this person on video as they proceeded to trespass and steal from all the properties in my neighborhood, and eventually managed to flag down a couple APD officers who were driving through the area and got them to stop the thief. The thief is an elderly asian woman, possibly vietnamese, who typically wears a grey cap, blue jeans and grey sneakers. The thief usually uses a large three-wheeled cart to transport the stolen recyclables to whoever is paying them for them.

Officers apparently asked them to knock it off and I thought the issue was finally resolved, only to see this same person come back again the next weekend and continue trespassing and stealing from everyone's properties in the neighborhood.

There's also a handful of other thieves, possibly associates of this individual, who also like to go around trespassing on people's properties and digging through their bins. They usually hit various apartment complexes on central before proceeding northbound on Pearl street to hit more properties up that way. I am not sure what their full route is, but I know that they typically come around this area on Sundays and Mondays (although I've also occasionally seem them on a few other days), and usually either mid-morning or in the afternoon.

it is very frustrating that even after an entire year of thoroughly documenting the problem, diligently reporting it to APD every time it happens, the problem continues to persist totally unabated. APD needs to put an end to the weekly recycling theft and trespassing that they've allowed to continue with impunity for an entire year (and possibly longer).
