Maybe our condo manager didn't report it to the police, but those same 3 thugs at Rolling Green also cruised through Shadowbrook last night, breaking into cars. They threw the contents of my glove compartment on the floor.

I see a lot of reports in the log that are complaints made after the fact, just to get it in the record, so you may want to let police know this happened.

Shadowbrook doesnt report anything! They don't want a bad rep. My car has been broken into twice.

Shadowbrook already has a bad rep in my opinion. My car has also been broken into twice - and THIS time, someone called our professional security guard to tell him there were 3 suspicious looking males roaming around the complex. I know someone who lives in a first floor unit and when she found a window screen had been raised as if someone tried to break in and she reported it, management told her the SNOW could have caused it. Or maybe it was one of the million squirrels that live here?

Shadowbrook has gone down hill except for the outrages condo fees! What security are you talking about? The ones that are contracted from 5:30 pm to 1:30 am. Maybe this is so the office personel can get out safely. The place is becoming more of a dump and the meetings to talk about this are a joke. Not only has my car been broken into twice but there has been alot of suspicious activity as well. You call the office all they tell you to do is call the police. I am starting to not feel safe living there. Something needs to done....
