Car broken into last night!
by Kimberly Chassay on January 16th, 2013

Just to give everyone a heads-up, my husbands car was parked on Tom Miller Street last night and was broken into. The only tempting items that he had visible in the car was our dirty dry cleaning bag, which they didn't even take.

Since we have lived here, my car was stolen while parked on Tom Miller Street, someone tried to break into our home through our patio doors and now his car! Would anyone like to have a dialogue about security and deterring crime in Mueller?!

A relatively wealthy neighborhood borders on a relatively poor neighborhood.
Houses on Tom Miller cost in excess of multiple hundreds of thousands of dollars. On the other side of a thin strip of parkland are people of much less fortunate circumstances, the poorest of which live in hotel rooms that have been converted into permanent dwellings.
Short of building a wall, patrolling it with armed guards, and generally creating a police state to live in, there is nothing that will prevent poor teenagers, who are growing up in hotel rooms, from looking across the park, witnessing the wealth of this neighborhood, and sometimes deciding "To hell with it, I want a piece of that pie."
Long term solutions do exist. The primary one being for us to make certain that our schools are well funded and teach children what they need to know in order to find meaningful and rewarding work, thus creating the economic conditions that will foster equal opportunities and somewhat diminish the disparity of wealth that makes crime an inevitability.

I'm sorry this happened to you. We've had APD at a couple of Mueller Neighborhood Association meetings in the last year and here are some of Officer Tarver's recommendations that I remember.

- Lock windows and doors
- Keep blinds/curtains closed (don't advertise your stuff)
- Close garage doors
- Park in garage if possible. Otherwise, don't leave anything visible in your car
- Activate your alarm system

- and know how to contact them
- know who should be coming/going

- report any suspicious activity to 911. Let APD sort out whether it's legit or not, but if someone's behavior doesn't look right to you, call it in.
- report all theft or other crime to APD

Overall, our crime occurrence is much lower than surrounding neighborhoods. If we do the above, and look out for each other, we will hopefully keep it that way.

In addition, our POA hires off-duty officers to patrol on a variable schedule. They shift the schedule as conditions change, but we can't afford them 24/7. Filing reports on any crime that does occur will help them determine the best patrol schedule.

I share Kimberly's concerns and wonder why there has been no further dialogue re safety issues via the MNA and/or MCA. Several months ago we appeared to be close to some community action. These plans seem to have been abandoned (and let me emphasize that they did not include vigilante-style armed guards, nor did they include better school funding or EEO activities).

To see what crime is happening in Mueller and surrounding areas, try You can have them send you a daily update via email if you wish. One takeaway from checking it over the last few months is that Mueller is one of the lowest crime neighborhoods in Austin.

You must have to put security alarm system in your car such as global link laser alarm by the help of Locksmith or other good technician so that you are warned of these thefts.

I think that it is important to feel safe when you look up your business or personal property at night. You want to leave work or property and not have to worry about work or worrying about someone breaking into your office or car and stealing your stuff. Hiring a Locksmith to secure your business or vehicles is the best way to leave work and work. It will help you sleep at night and not have to worry about the safety of your business.
