    I fear it may get worse with the storm. Some folks (not all people fleeing south Florida come seeking help) with bad intentions coming this way... Saw it with Katrina.

    Lock your doors (cars, homes) and DONT leave your gun in your car please...

    Yes, Eastern Lake area had at least six or seven car burglaries last night. About two weeks ago there was another bunch of them in this neighborhood, and they caught the girl who did those. This doesn't seem to be one isolated individual, but more like a trend.

    Lots and lots of WCSO activity over in Watercolor right now (3:00pm).

    Hopefully this means more arrests!!!

    The Car Burglars also set a boat on fire...

    It's on the WCSO site.

    When caught, please anyone that was victimized, press charges against them!

    This is one of the suspects homes in Watercolor.

    How are these people living in Watercolor? Renters most likely...

    John for the most part, I agree with a fair amount of your posts so let the record state, I'm one of the idiots that didn't lock my car. Yes , twice in 17 years I left my car unlocked and twice they got me . But it all honesty, I spoke for 15 minutes with the sheriff when he took my statement and you are way off base with your facts and assumptions and go to WCSO.org and see the rocket scientists that did the dirty work and read the WHOLE story.. So rather then spread what could be construed as fake news, lets agree on a few common things. One lock your cars, your house and leave no valuables where people can misappropriate them and two, secure your belongings before Erma gets them, and three stay safe !!!

    Sounds like you were a victim. Sorry...

    If you'll please note, my post was made before any official release was made by WCSO.

    justhavinfun,

    You have contributed some good discourse to this discussion, but I encourage you to save your breath. Bob Wells (a really good guy) and I were having a rational conversation on this issue when pappaj and johng made us aware that anyone that has a lapse in memory is an idiot and should go to jail if they leave their car unlocked and someone steals a gun, tire iron or ball bat and hurts or kills someone, the idiot should be charged. Pappaj and johng don't seem to realize that many of us mere mortals do not walk on water nor are we infallible as they obviously are. Over recent years society has moved more and more to find fault with everyone but the bad guys.

    Wonder just how many deputies were actually on patrol in SoWal during these incidents... sounds like the know / knew where the "traveling bands of criminals" will be.

    “It is not uncommon to have traveling bands of criminals in areas where they know that they have, for instance, mothers inside with children,” Walton County Sheriff Michael Adkinson said.

    SoWal wont let me post the article from NW FL Daily Today... The above quote is from that article.

    It is in reference to high smash and grab crime rate that targets women with kids.

    Idiot yes, jail no. You should be shot and skinned alive in public with your belongings distributed among the poor souls who suffered because of your poor judgement.
