    that's why they're coming to Cary. No crime and plenty of people with things to steal.

    cary cops have lots to do, the media just doesn't report it...wonder why??? funny how cary had all those car break ins, i must have missed it, but the mug shots of the teens responsible some how wasn't newsworthy...

    Ah, this is news because it took place in the triangle's beloved Cary. The same thing happened to my car three weeks ago (it was stolen in a gas station parking lot, and the teenager who stole my car led police on a chase for about five miles until he eventually crashed and rolled my car) and I don't remember reading about it on WRAL. Of course, this happened in Durham, and we all know how much the media loves Durham.

    That's some serious in-depth reporting there WRAL. Whew, hard to take in all those facts. Care to elaborate a little?
