    I actually had my utility trailer broken into at the bradford crossing apartments between 2/10-2/12. got me for over $5000 in tools. what's ironic is that they're laundry machines we're hit during the same time. with any luck and good police work they'll get these parasites.

    Close the borders. Search for these guys paying in quarters at the local convenient store for cigarettes and beer.

    It's Raleigh! What were you expecting!

    All they have to do to catch them is tell local store owners to report anyone who tries to pay for items entirely in quarters. Lol.

    They'll plead out to a couple charges at most and will be free to go do it again. They will just try harder to not get caught next time when they need beer money.
