Yeah...Leaves...it is. Cut the lock.......what will it take for a business to keep their goods safe in todays world... flashing neon lights & sirens???
Or stakeouts ----the kind that worked years ago????

Too many crimes and not

Too many crimes and not enough Law Enforcement Officers.......however if the local government gave them "shoot on sight" orders on stakeouts, then the crimes would take a nosedive.

Let's face it 55, more LEOs
Unpublished

Let's face it 55, more LEOs won't prevent this type of crime. I'm not arguing the need or not of more officers, I just don't see where property crimes would be affected except in neighborhoods where stepped up patrols "might" deter daytime burglaries.
