    Good luck prosecuting anyone not caught in the act of stealing.

    Dont leave items in plain sight lock them up don't invite trouble

    It doesn't matter if the police catch them or not -- there's no real punishment in our so-called criminal justice system anymore. This has been going on for a long time, you're just reading about it now.

    Is Cary safe? Not any more or less safe than anywhere else.

    We ate at that Macaroni Grill last night, and I was wondering what would draw three Cary police cars over there.

    Since they were all in one place, the rest of the area would have been ripe for the pickings. Though the mall closes at 6 on Sundays, so there was fewer cars over there, except for the area around the grocery store.

    I don't think sending kids to summer concentration camp will fix this problem, since no one knows if kids are doing it.

    Unless the privlidged kids/robbers from Brier Creek (who lived there) have moved to Cary.

    Ummm....Did I miss something? I don't see anything in the article that says that kids did this or that anyone has been caught for the crimes. Where did you guys see that?

    I have no use for a thief, and have no problem with them and their allegedly adult parental figures being punished for crimes, but in this day and age, only a fool leaves something valuable visible in their parked car. It is an open invitation for some little savage to steal.

    "What's up Mayor and City Council -- too busy measuring and monitoring colors of business signs to address a real problem?"

    Or.....what's up PARENTS who let their children roam the streets, often impose no curfews and have no idea what they are up to when they are away from the home.

    Some people tried to break into a frinds car this past Friday night at Triangle Town Center.

    They kick the Kids out of the malls after 5pm because a few were causing problems. Where did they expect them to go, home. Now they are just hanging out oustide the malls with nothing to do but get in trouble.

    Our car was broken into in November at the same place. That same night there had been a rash of burgleries in the area according to the policeman who came to our car.

    Clearly NOTHING has been done to rectify this problem. What's up Mayor and City Council -- too busy measuring and monitoring colors of business signs to address a real problem?

    Ummm...Prozac Dispenser...how do you know the robbers escape "back" to Durham and Garner?!?!? They could be from (insert *gasp* Cary or Raleigh).
