    This type of crime will only get worse. They have not seen anything yet. The economy is so screwed up, it will happen time after time. Sad to say, this is why innocent people get hurt or killed.

    They heard the police were all riding bikes now and figured they could get away on their scooter.

    Don't be fooled, crime is everywhere and not just in south Raleigh as many tend to think.

    No actually it is because the criminals have cars and know how to use the beltline! LOL

    RoadGeek - that's because most of the people living in S. Raleigh have moved out to N. Raleigh....

    Wow, the crime rate in N. Raleigh is getting nearly as bad as it is in S. Raleigh...
