Looks like all the thugs and hoodrats from Ponticrack have found a new stomping ground. Either that, or all the punk kids are at it again.

Sounds like we could use some additional patroling of this area by our Oaklkand County Sheriff's. Don't know if it is possible though, our local city govenment has reduced the number of officers in the last couple years while continuing to give themselves big pay raises, pension contributions and benefit packages unheard of in the private sector. Yes, line items in budgets do make a difference and we as residents and tax payers need to pay attention and make sure our money is being distributed in an appropriate manner.

Wondering what time of the day these crimes took place? I'm still amazed at the number of people still leaving valuables in their cars.

Laurie, I'm wondering what a one-day spree that appears to have taken place in close proximity to each other, in cars that people left items of value exposed, has to do with your assertions for more police and city government raises, etc. Geez, give it a break. You lost and continue to still be on your soapbox.

Most of these instances were reported between 5 and 7:30 a.m. the morning of May 22, so it is presumed the break-ins occurred overnight.
