EDMOND, Okla. - Jenny Street loves her Edmond neighborhood.

But she doesn’t love what’s been happening in it.

“I love Valencia, think it’s the greatest neighborhood ever.  But I’m not going to let a bunch of 14 and 15 year olds get away with stuff like this.  It’s just not going to happen, not in my neighborhood,” said Street.

She says recently, several neighbors have had valuables stolen out of their garages and vehicles parked out front.

“There’s been a gentleman that has gotten his truck broken into three different times,” said Street.

That neighbor posted on Valencia’s Nextdoor App – “I am tired of having things taken from my property and this WILL STOP!”

“We’re just all kind of fed up with it and this is our way to you know get it out there,” said Street.

Street says many residents believe two teens from the neighborhood could be responsible and some have even posted pictures of them from home surveillance cameras.

While Street herself has not been victimized, she’s taken to the streets looking for them.

“I did last night.  I drove down all the main streets looking for someone on a skateboard,” she said.  “If you’re breaking into cars at 14 and 15 years old or you’re stealing from other people’s property at 14 or 15 years old, you probably need an intervention.”

For now, Street says she’s double checking all locks at night and will continue to keep an eye out for anyone targeting her neighbors.
