Nice job Evil !!!!
Thread: OCer [Me?] Deters burglary
So I came home at around 1:45 this morning. My neighbors were out of town, as they are getting married tomorrow... well technically today. As I got out of the car I noticed a black mercedes, one I did not recognize, parked in front of their house. The car was on, the lights were off. I could see in the silhouette of the dvd player in the dash that there was at least one person in the car... by now it was 2:00am... seemed strange to me.
Anyway, since I was the only one around today I was tasked with retrieving my neighbors mail while they are gone... so I made sure to keep an eye on that car, and made sure its occupants knew I was armed, while I did so. I tried to call police non-emergency before I went, too, but nobody answered. Anyway after I grabbed the mail I saw their taillights flash... startled me, but they were switching into drive... and they drove off, slowly, leaving their headlights off.
That pretty much confirmed my suspicions... I called 911, the cops came, and I gave them as good of a description as I could. They made sure the property was clear of bad guys, and then left, saying they'd pay extra attention to the area since I expressed concerns that they may just have been scouting the house for a later burglary.
So... thats my story. Yay OC. Time for bed.

Sounds like the burglars from a movie!
Good Job! Keep that SA cranked up!!
Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.
Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."
Your neighbors are lucky to have you in the area. Most people today are afraid (basically of everything) they won't say or do anything until after the fact when it's too late. IE watch as the house gets cleaned out, then when the owners return "say things like" oh I thought they were friends visiting your home. really at 2am and taking all the valuables with them on the way out?
Good job looking out for others Evil Creamsicle! +1000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000!
If you have a non-emergency situation and you're just observing suspicious behavior, you can still call 911 (if the non-emergency line is unanswered or you don't know it). Just say first thing, "This is not an emergency . . ." then explain the nature of your call. I've done this a few times in my life, and 911 operators understand and handle it.
If one has reasonable suspicion of criminal behavior, even it it's not an emergency, get in touch immediately with the police, even if you have to resort to 911 to do it. Do not give suspected criminals one more minute of time than you possibly can avoid.
a BIG - 1 CAUSE you didnt get the plate number for the cops!!

Exo 22:2 "If anyone catches a thief breaking in and hits him so that he dies, he is not guilty of murder.
Luke 22:36: "Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." Luk 11:21 "When a strong man, with all his weapons ready, guards his own house, all his belongings are safe.
Wish you were my neighbor!
Good work. Hope you got their license plate?
