Thank you for the report. WE will very near there and that is scary. We didn't even know about this going on. I woulnd't be surprised if this kid just gets a kick out of doing this and doesn't really need the stuff or the money that he can get for it! I bet his parents are oblivious too.

Why do you say things like that? You have no idea and you're just going on, like so many on this blog, about things you have no business commenting on! Take the info, lock your house up, keep your eyes open so you can be helpful. Stop being so judgmental!!

I think Marylou just might BE the 'local burgler'.

...."We will very near there"
...."I woulnd't"

Too funny.....

I went to HS with that kid - he's really a good guy - just hung out with the wrong crowd.

I'm his neighbor... I don't think it could possibly him - he used to rake my lawn.

He's always been misunderstood - but he's a great guy - I hope he gets the help he needs.

Sorry - just pre-filling some of the comments that will come out when the *criminal* is identified.

and horror of horrors -- rumor has it that those sneaky cops were using an undercover vehicle in the process of finding this guy! OMG, that must be unconstitutional or something! The nerve of our PD to trick us by trying to be undercover and solve crimes. And yeah, if you are going 50 in a 25 you will even get a ticket.

What these crooks don't realize is that it's just not the crime itself that's bad. It's the psychological impact on the victims that could take a toll (i.e., kids afraid to sleep in their beds because they are afraid this person will come back, feeling so violated that someone took your belongings, etc.). I think we should pass a law like the middle eastern countries - if these losers are caught we chop off their hands! Word to people who do WILL get caught.

Most people are honest, but:

He probably committed more crimes than they have linked to him, yet.
Anyone who has had their home entered, or has been robbed should call the police.
Anyone with a camera record of anything suspicious also.

Someone said they went to school with him. You'd be doing all of us, and him a favor if he gets caught and gets help before this gets worse.
