Skinny young white man with light hair sounds like that artist sketch that the police are circulating. Hope the police can catch this serial criminal quickly. Everyone please look at that sketch again and call the police if you know any potential suspects: Web Link

I know several people who have had their homes burglarized. All of them had burglar alarms that were turned on. But the burglar alarms didn't help. The criminals get in and out of the house so fast that the alarms are of little value. And the police never catch the crooks. What should we do, short of having a barking German Shepard living in our backyards? Any advice would be appreciated.

The other thing that's happening all over the place is cars being broken into by smashing the front window and stealing anything that looks like a laptop. My son's car got the treatment even though his case had nothing but sheet music in it, the burglar, I'm sure, thought it was a laptop and threw all the music in the street and took off with the briefcase. Don't leave things like that in the car. Too much of a target!
