You have NO IDEA how much this is going to help.

Well, after last night's Town Hall, maybe you do. Either way, thank you again.

Thanks for posting this. Please do try and do it on a (semi) regular basis. Not only will it help us be more informed, but it could also help cut down on the rumors about crimes that are difficult to substantiate.

did you have wheel locks on the rims? it's not hard to get a wheel lock key, they sell them at pep boys. i'm just wondering how much of a deterrent they are.
