if they are in our garages at 1;00 am can we shoot them
I believe there was a situation up in Spencer township where a home owner shot at some people because he thought they were breaking into his garage and he was arrested for it. Correct me if I am wrong but I do not think you are allowed to use deadly force to protect property.

Was that the kids that TP the guys house or somthing, I think the law states, You can use deadly force If your life Is in danger. This brings to mind the cop who just shot a transit, thought he was pulling his taser gun. The guy would not stand up, So they were going to taser him.

I understand stealing beer and or food, but I cant see stealing property right now, like tools and things like that,because no one can even afford to buy stolen property.

They (suspects) initially called going from garage to garage as grarage hopping. They initially targeted beer but discovered how easy they could unload IPODs, GPS units and other goodies and cash left in or around vehicles.

We finally caught one group of young adults and linked them to hundreds of "garage invasions." They got off scott free as one of them had a well known attorney for a dad and the judge allowed them to plead to a charge that erased everything from their records.

The garage incidents have slowed down but now we are dealing with an individual whom is hitting parked cars for wallets and purses. They are breaking windows in open parking lots during the hours of 4-8PM. They are concentrating on parking lots where females tend to leave their purses behind: tanning centers, gyms, crazy bounce and ect.
