Antioch Residents Help Clean Up Community
Gun Safe Found Containing Personal Documents, Police Called to the Scene
By Allen Payton, Publisher
About 100 residents, including council members and police commissioners, picked up trash in the neighborhoods and along the streets near Meadow Creek Estates in Southeast Antioch, this morning, February 5, during the monthly Community Clean Up.
Acting Chief Allan Cantando and Antioch Police Crime Prevention Commissioner Dennis Jeglum thanked those who showed up and gave instructions, as the volunteers divided up in teams to take on various sections of the neighborhood.
One team of volunteers that participated was from the local Target store. Others were some of the people who attended last night’s Take Back Antioch meeting.
Hundreds, if not thousands of pounds of trash was gathered, including a tire, broken flat screen television. The largest find was a gun safe containing personal documents including birth certificates, a marriage license and a receipt for a diamond purchase. After police were called and on their way to the location, two members of the Volunteers In Public Safety remained with the safe and told everyone not to touch anything because “it’s evidence, now.”
The next planned Community Clean Up is scheduled for Saturday, March 12.
