We’ve just updated our Roanoke Valley crime map with the latest offenses from Salem and Roanoke County — and Roanoke, as well. The data includes offenses through August 24.
Last week, Salem reported six larcenies, three burglaries and one motor vehicle theft.
In western Roanoke County, there was a report of a single larceny.
Also, the Salem Police Department provides more detailed information than other localities — so in addition to the Roanoke Valley crime map, we have a more detailed Salem crime map you can search, as well.
Follow the links above and you can see where they were and what they were. Our data delivery editor, Matt Chittum, has more information how you can use the searchable crime maps.
He also has a special question for Salemites. We’ve noticed fewer people seem interested in the more detailed Salem crime map — even though it’s got more interesting stuff. Matt would like to know why. You can read his post, and leave a comment, right here.
Also on our Datasphere collection of searchable data: Who’s selling beer to your kids? Look up which stores have been busted for selling to underage buyers.
