This has been going on for a while now...here's a thought...let the people in the area know that there's a problem so everyone can watch out for burglars? I suggested a FaceBook page to the Police department...to let people know what was going on...no one reads the local rag newstimes, so use the internet! Too modern an approach I guess!
