Target-Rich Environment

With all the pushing of the Olympic trials as an economic booster, it was funny to find a press release from the EPD reminding us that every silver lining has a cloud:

During the 2008 Olympic Trials held in Eugene, crime went up around the entire city. Between 06/24/2008 and 07/09/2008 EPD recorded 83 burglaries, 119 thefts and 59 stolen vehicles.

That said, it's not funny if your stuff gets damaged or stolen in this "target-rich environment," so keep an eye out for yourself and your neighbor.
