    The authorities urge people to lock their cars. Its seems to me that the reason the car windows were broken was because the cars were locked!

    Perhaps the authorities should tell people to leave their cars unlocked so the car winows will not be broken...well, just a thought!

    I'm not sure why authorities are telling people to "Lock thier doors".....didn't sound like a lock was doing much good.

    How about some warnings in Fuquay/Willow Springs?? Two nights ago, a bunch of cars were broken into there.
