Residents in the Oak Park Northwood neighborhood are fed up with frequent home and vehicle burglaries and they're taking action.

The San Antonio Police Department says that neighbors serving as the eyes and ears of the police tend to keep crooks out of the neighborhood. That was the mission of some Boy Scouts and neighbors this weekend who hit the streets in a neighborhood plagued with car break-ins and burglaries.

The Boy Scouts teamed up with the Oak Park Northwood Neighborhood Association to help fight crime. Scouts put door hangers on homes and got to know their neighbors and area businesses.

The neighborhood is part of San Antonio City Council District 10.
