    That is because you are reading it on WRAL. If you want the actual news and a real story try another website like WTVD. They have a very good write up on it.

    I'm not contradicting all you are saying but there are gangs in that area unfortunately, the media refuses to bring them to light. Remember that Hispanic couple that were gunned down?? Keep your eyes open, you'll see the signs in Garner

    More and more home invasions.

    No. Just more being reported in a world of internet and 24 hour news. The web page would be very dull if it only covered the 5 stories on the 6 o'clock news. And the news back in the day didn't have time to report things like this with other stories.

    Another assumption and most likely an incorrect one.

    I am amazed and some of the uninformed comments on this board. While some people with lower incomes may live in this neighborhood there are many hardworking homeowners who have been here for years and years. There are a few troublemakers, but there are no gangs. Crime is a problem no matter where you live. For those of you that are discussing what homes people should break into: #1 you don't know what these people had in their home, you can only assume. # 2. No one, no matter where they live, Cary, Garner, or anywhere else deserves to have their home broken in to. The people on this board need to get informed before they spout off about things they know nothing about.

    "Because the percentage of us that believe in the 2nd amendment in Cary can afford better guns then they do. For the rest of Cary, our PD is pretty well trained. The odds are stacked against them."

    Another fantasy. Better guns? just worth more when they sell them on to other criminals. At the ranges involved its going to make little difference what gun it is thats fired at you. We do have a good PD but the main reason that we have little crime is that we have few poor areas and so relatively less criminals (well we have no doubt plenty of white collar crooks) and criminals almost always steal from what and who they know. This was likley a drugs related crime with one gang stealing from another or a "punishment " for doing something they did not like.

    These guys are likely lucky they didn't have quick access to guns or they may well now be dead.....not just injured. When your opponent is armed and has the element of surprise starting a fire fight is not likely to end well

    Am I reading correctly that people are actually suggesting criminals to rob homes in Cary to get more? Upset Cary resident!!

    The article doesn't state that anything was stolen or that it was a robbery. The intention could have been to assault the residents.
