A light bar and a tailgate taken off a truck . What next? You come out and find your car on blocks!

I once did a story, in Jacksonville, on residents of an apartment complex who took certain engine parts inside at night so their cars wouldn't be stolen. :(

I sure hope it doesn't come to that here. Milford is getting worse than ever! The cold weather and snow isn't stopping the thieves either.
