This happened very close to the police station without a good description of suspects and vehicle. Sounds like a made up story.

Joe Knows? I don't think so...what do you consider close? Six blocks is my calculation and do you expect the police to babysit?It was dark out and the suspects dressed in dark clothing... My point be that I have heard so many various stories and makes no difference, a breakin is is just that...it happened so lets get on with it...just my opinion

some body knows, 13 of them for sure knows. thats how many come to rob a disabled woman, who was alone. her life saving to buy a home to get out of this area away from her x- husband and to start a new life and play with her grand children. To my knowledge no arrests have been made. those that have info are told to call in and no officers are returning the call , whats up with THAT????? I am not an expert on finding criminals but facebook shows alot
