APD Orders Shelters in Place

 

Reports of a man with a gun on Pearl Street and a carjacker on the loose on Webster precipitated a pair of shelters-in-place last week. Alameda Police Department (APD) received a call about an armed man entering a home on the 900 block of Pearl Street last Friday around 11:45 p.m. Police issued a shelter in place for several blocks of Pearl Street and Otis Drive near the incident. 

Then, on Monday, a carjacker led police on a wild chase from San Leandro through East Oakland and into Alameda by way of the Webster Tube. The strong-armed thief escaped from the stolen vehicle in a parking lot on Webster Street. APD issued a shelter-in-place for portions of Eagle, Buena Vista and Lincoln avenues. 

APD later lifted both shelters-in-place without incidents. Police determined no one had committed any crime on Pearl Street. The alleged carjacker remains at large.

ok whats going on in my beloved town, I lived here for many years after the navy until I moved to the central valley and cost of housing is the ONLY reason I'm not there now but I have to say I so discouraged reading these stories almost every day. I realize Alameda is growing and with that comes crime but its a sad day to see this happen in a town that I hold so dear to my heart. I only;y hope the APD can get a handle on this growing crime that's affecting this beautiful town.
