Woman wants more community awareness when identifying crime.
We got to live in this neighborhood and we have to look out for each others' houses because if you rob one, you'll rob us all.
LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Some people in a Little Rock community say what happened in their neighborhood recently is a great example of neighbors helping neighbors. But they would like to see more activism in their community.

Kellie Landrio called police after noticing strange activity at a neighbor's home on South Battery Thursday just before Noon.

"We were cleaning up around here and noticed that two gentlemen were coming across the fence over here at this big house and they had done stuff in their hands," said Landrio.

Landrio says police did arrive and shortly afer that,  the homeowner, Constance Whitfield did too.

"About 11 o'clock I got a call from my daughter, saying another neighbor had called and said another neighbor had seen two gentleman jump my fence," said Whitfield.

Whitfield says the thief took a tv, plus some rings.
.
"My neighbors said they though they had seen jewelry in the (thieves) hands when they jumped the fence and that confirmed in fact they had taken some jewelry out of my house," said Whitfield.

Mrs. Whitfield says Little Rock police have done a great job investigating her case. But she is still planning to take her personal security to the next level.

"I've changed blinds. I've changed drapes. We are getting lights around the house. It had put us on notice there are other security measures we need to take," said Whitfield. 

Whitfield says she's thankful her neighbors called police and encourages more activism.

"We are fortunate in this community we have neighbors that do look out," said Whitfield.

Landrio agrees.

"We got to live in this neighborhood and we have to look out for each others' houses because if you rob one, you'll rob us all," said Landrio.

Whitfield says she did find some of her rings along her fence line, where neighbors saw the burglars.
