"Some people don't listen when the police say, 'lock your vehicles, lock your doors.' We try to be vigilant."

 "I don't know if it's drugs, or if it's because it's so hard to find a job that people are desperate. It's scary. The other night it seemed like someone was trying to come in my door. I have a dog and she was barking. When she barks, I know something's up. I don't know what the solution would be."

"My wife owns a business on N. Center Street. I worry about it. You've got to take precautions, like she makes sure it's locked up and lit up. That helps a little bit. She has been broken into before."

"It's sad, but it's not surprising."

"It's unsettling and it's disappointing that you have to keep your garage doors locked and if you leave your vehicle somewhere whether its locked or unlocked, it may or may not get broken into."

Count yourself lucky if locks keep out burglars. Several filthy loser burglars kicked in my locked door. They left muddy footprints on the door and muddy handprints on my walls. They were all drug makers, sellers, and users.
