Crime Drops in Oakland as Nacho Gets Burglarized

Crime is finally on the decline in Oakland, at least for the first two months of 2009, according to a good news piece in today’s Chron by columnist Chip Johnson. Homicides declined 50 percent, auto thefts dipped 33 percent, and robberies are down 16 percent. The one piece of bad news is that burglaries are up slightly, as Vice Mayor Ignacio De La Fuente knows, because his Fruitvale house got burglarized yesterday afternoon.
