Stolen Property Recovered Help Sought to Identify Victims

crime prevention communityDetectives from Metro Property Crimes have recently identified a suspect in numerous package theft cases in and around the Brookside area; Leawood, Kansas; and Prairie Village, Kansas.  During the investigation into these thefts, numerous items were recovered.  The items shown in the attached pictures are believed to be stolen but KCPD is unable to determine from whom the items were stolen or where.  To assist in the investigation, these photos are being shared with the community for identification.

Review property photos here

If you or someone you know was a victim of a package or other property theft in recent months, please review the photos.  If you recognize items that belong to you, even if they have already been replaced, please contact Detective Harris at (816) 581-0669 or Darla.harris@kcpd.org.

To complete the identification process, a copy of the order from the sender, like Amazon, will be needed.  This is an important step in the process of holding someone accountable for the thefts.  Even if your property was replaced by the sender, taking the time to assist in the investigation will help law enforcement on both sides of the state line keep our neighborhoods safer for everyone.

Armour Green Fountain Island Improvements RFP

The Armour Hills Homes Association in Kansas City, Missouri, is seeking proposals for repairs and improvements to the Armour Green Fountain Island. This project will make repairs and improvements to the fountain, existing stonework, and both the plumbing and electrical systems in the Armour Green Fountain Island.
All qualified contractors will be considered, please email president@armourhills.org to receive a set of contract documents.

Armour Green Fountain Restoration Update

Planning for the first of two fountain restoration projects is moving forward. Armour Green Fountain is located at 69th Street and Rockhill Road. The 3-tiered fountain in this island is not original to the neighborhood. It is actually the third piece installed in this location and needs to be replaced due to age. As discussed at the Annual Meeting, the Armour Hills Board is seeking neighborhood input on the selection of a new fountain piece. This is an informal poll to gauge interest in several options that could replace the current fountain piece.

Feedback from the poll will be combined with a number of criteria, including installation, water volume, and cost to make a selection best suited for Armour Hills. Please let us know which fountain you prefer by your selection on the poll below the descriptions of each fountain.

This option would replace the existing 3-tiered fountain with a similar piece.  The fountain would have a single water spout at the top; water would spill from the edges of each tier and then fall into the basin below. This sculpture would be mounted in a pedestal with one or two basins.  Water would come from the mouth of the fish as well as each of the shells; water would spill from the edges of each tier and then fall into the basin below.
