  1. I am surprised that RPD did not add a comment that indicated that these professional car thieves are not looking for confrontation and we should all relax. Crimes of opportunity. Really. Some HS kid stealing change is an crime of opportunity not someone with a plan to steal multiple cars.

  2. I had a bike filched from my garage 5 years. They took 2 bikes from my neighbor’s house on the same night.

    So I bought a new side door that locked and added a light.

    Last year I bought a Ring camera for the backyard that has a view of the garage.

    My neighbor, currently out of the country, purchased a burglar alarm service last month.

    Kind of sad…

  3. for what it is worth X ; my car was locked, there were car stealing tools and equipment on my lawn when we chased them off. it was not high school kids stealing my change.

  4. This is what happens when the town goes from “right leaning” to “far left”

    I can’t tell…
    Are you a troll or are you an idiot?
    .
    Let’s just go with your assumption that it’s HS kids. We should all “relax” because RHS kids think its OK to steal from their neighbor’s cars?
    .
    Or let’s go with your “non-confrontational professional thieves”. We should all “relax” since professional thieves are stealing our property from our driveways, but if we confront them they’ll run away?
    .
    I hope you are a troll (for your sake) but I suspect you are not…

  6. All the silly virtue signaling makes the town a taget
