My friend was shopping at the mall on Wednesday, December 7th, during the day. When he came out to his car...his car had been broken into and he even saw the people exiting the vehicle, but he did not see their exact description, but did see other things. Has anyone else had problems at the mall?? There is more to the story...the security cameras were not good and when viewed they were very blurry. Something needs to be done!!

This is an inappropriate and racist comment, which completely offends me.

I was simply stating a concern about mall safety and if anyone else had experienced the same misfortune at the mall while shopping there. It is a horrible to come out to your car to find items stolen that cannot be replaced.

A while back they busted the drivers side window outta my car over by OCB\Xsport. They got me for some loose change but $80 to fix my window. I think it was the trainers in kahoots at xsport. They see you come in with out any bag or anything and they assume u left your wallet in the car.

there have been over 500 thefts at xsport since it opened. file a foi at village hall or pd you will see. the pd has offered help by suggesting an off duty ridge cop in the locker room but xsport refused stating "bad pr". they dont care because they get your money up front. other sudggestions have been made but refused by xsport management.

It used to be a nice little mall, now it's a ghetto hangout, like all of the area malls are becoming.

The cops have plenty of time to set up road blocks on 95th at the Mall for "safety checks" to pad their coffers with outrageous violation fines but can't do a thing about crime at the Mall.

SO Possy you want us to pay more tax money to hire more cops when it's the mall people who should be securing the property? DO you really want our tax bill going up?

The mall cops are a worthless waste of paychecks. All they care about is talking to one another while walking around and being oblivious to real problems.

The safety checks are paid for by the state police through a grant and has nothing to do with padding stats. You make it sound so easy to stop a car burglary with a parking lot so big. Did you ever think that car burglars look like regular people and they may be smart enough to stop when they see a car with red and blue lights.

Good! That place was getting run down and filthy. Maybe they are finally remodeling.
