We live up the street on Maybell and the police and their German Shephered K9 came and sniffed around our house looking for the would be burgler. I learned about this when I came home from a back to school night and my middle and high schooler were home alone. I was alarmed to learn the police tapped on the window to ask the kids if they had seen anything. I was glad to hear the police were vigilant as the attempted burglary was several blocks from my home. However, it is a wake up call to be super VIGILANT. This was taking place early evening when most people are home. Lock up and keep an eye out!!!

you are being watched by them. they ask questions about you when they interrogate people. you will naturally reference people you know and they will ask questions about THEM! you dsay ''yeah .i go there all the time ,they know me''. then they will ask questions about people who dont really know YOU! police are afraid of YOU! YOU have more social standing and probably have te ''45''. thyre afraid of YOU!

We don't have all the facts here, and probably shouldn't be openly discussing police tactics lest the thieves infer better escape plans. Usually the person who calls 911 stays on the line and is prompted to provide additional information until police arrive. If the burglar had already fled and the reporting party was no longer in immediate danger, then police might have put more urgency into setting up a perimeter than arriving at the residence. I don't know.
