A Northside resident sent me an email with photos and asked me to pass on the following message to somebody trying to steal chain link fence at 2827 Lyndale Avenue North...
Hey Johnny Northside, please post this message with photos on your blog.
Last year many of us had our air conditioning condenser units stolen by ne'er-do-well knuckle heads. Now some idiots think they have the right to remove chain link fencing from private property for their own gain.
The property at 2827 Lyndale Avenue North has been abandoned and now the fence thieves feel free to remove the chain link fencing for their own monetary gain. We are watching you, fence thieves, and we will not tolerate your illegal activities in our part of North Minneapolis. We watch, and we will call the police should you decide to return to complete your removal of private property.
Besides the photo at the top of this blog post, the email contains the following photos.
The property in question is owned by an "Angel Perez," listed at the same address. Perez supposedly paid $210,000 for the property in 2002. The previous owner was Jennifer I. Bowman, who had purchased the property only 9 months earlier for $177,400.
Angel A. Perez was also listed as the contact for the rental license, and listed an address of 2544 Quincy St. NE in Minneapolis. The property was cited for lack of maintenance on March 7 of this year.
Anybody who knows anything else, please comment.
