Are the police doing anything with these break-in's??

Are they mind readers? I'm sure they're doing whatever they do in this situation.

I hope they come to my neighborhood .... I dont dial 911

The police should set up a "sting" car. Get a couple of pictures of the perp.
Andie November 08, 2012 at 11:55 AM
I have an idea. How about people lock their vehicles when their not in them.
Jessica Burke November 08, 2012 at 12:45 PM
After a full WEEK of cars being broken into, why are there unlocked cars anywhere in Milford? If you don't want your stuff stolen, lock it up! The world didn't just spit out dishonest people overnight!
Lisa B November 08, 2012 at 01:49 PM
I have a hard time with the phrase "break in" when they are not breaking anything, just opening an unlocked door..... duh

It's simple...LOCK YOUR CAR!

8:28 a.m.: A caller reported problems with traffic at Main and Congress streets, and people running red lights. Since they changed the way the lights operate and Water St gets a green light before Congress/S Main St there is not enough of a time delay between Water St getting a red light and Congress/S Main St getting a green light. I go through that intersection every evening between 5 and 6 pm and ever time Congress/S Main St get the green light there are people still driving through the middle of the intersection from Water Street. I foresee lots of accidents here unless it's fixed. Oh, and can people just smarten up and lock your cars.

It's funny, I happened to be in that intersection around that time, trying to get from the polls at the Portuguese Club to the one at the Senior Center. It was a long wait on Water waiting for that light. One of the problems during that morning rush was that people were blocking the intersection at South Main and Congress. The light timing is never going to work out if people block the intersections. And I saw people making crazy maneuvers to try to get around that...

Hopefully the police will (try) to track the usage on the Olive Garden gift card that was stolen.
David Nolta November 09, 2012 at 03:36 AM
Did I already tell this story? If so, forgive. Some years ago, I had my car inside my garage, but I left the garage open overnight. I ALWAYS lock my car when I park it. Anyway, the next morning, I found the driver's side door lock CUT OUT with a metal cutter, and--here's the punch line-- only the quarters were stolen from my change cup. Not the nickels and dimes and pennies--only the quarters!! $500 worth of damage, just so some kid (the police opinion) could get at my parking quarters. It's a terrible commentary on education, when kids don't understand that two dimes and a nickel make a quarter. And I'm not giving advice to thieves, but really--you're going to stop and SORT OUT the quarters from the rest of the change???
