LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -"This is a good part of town," Bill Woolly explained. But he also explained, "There are bad people everywhere."
Woolly lives on Briarwood in the Northwest division of Little Rock, an area in Little Rock police are paying close attention to. "And I've seen more activity of the local patrol in the last month and a half," Woolly said.
In an email sent to area residents, Lt. Scott Timmons wrote, "We have been seeing an increase in thieves using a particular tactic to break into homes." Thieves are knocking on the door and if you answer, they ask about yard work or ask to speak to someone you do not know. If you do not answer the door, they go into the back yard, knock again and if no answer, they kick in the door.
