    This has been happening all over town, but it only makes the news when it happens to the town.

    iron fist has it right. You can not rob a car WRAL, it is burglary.

    "if we would shut down all the pawn shops this would stop."

    Closing the pharmeceutical companies and drug stores would stop most drug use also.

    robbed 14 cars?? how do you rob a car. They took items from the cars they didn't rob the cars.

    sidecutter, I like your logic. People say give them a second chance. They got their second, third, and fourth chance when they didn't learn what momma and poppa taught them. You commit a crime, you must deal with whatever consequences comes along.

    If you shot all the perpetrators it would stop quicker.

    Lock the cars? But then you get to deal with damaged cars and broken windows. We have a business in Apex and have had the same problem with out service trucks. We do have video surveillance and of course the police recognized the clowns doing the break ins, they were on probation for....stealing things out of vehicles, imagine that!
