Of course chief Wolanin probably sees no "no connection" to the break ins even though they're on the same street or in the same area.

Just like when it came down to Dan Sullivan's son Joe caught taping up and preparing to torture and kill cats, another cat with taped up paws and burns was found ON THE SAME PROPERTY yet big mouth scumbag Wolanin said they saw "no connection" and the video disappeared.

This shows you exactly why nobody trusts the Law there any more and least of all Sullivan and Scott Mcnamara.

Watch out for your houses. There was a ton of robberies in Remsen in July that never made the news nor did they catch anyone. I can think of 5 houses that got robbed.

Keep leaving valuables in unlocked cars...what do you expect? Makes my locked house and car less of a target though, so I guess I should thank you

Maybe there's good reason why they keep commenting on the same person. They already,"have lives," that's why they care when someone tries to get away with a horrific crime against an animal. Something STINKS real bad about that whole situation. Gee, I wonder why people keep commenting? DUH

It's not a break-in if the door is open. It's even better when you're invited. Like a wedding, graduation or a birthday. You just grab and leave. The valley is an easy mark.

Entering someones property and entering their auto and removing things that are not yours w/the intent to sell the stuff for profit wasnt legal last i knew the world over.

You act like if the car is unlocked its aok, help yourself. Thats the victims fault if they choose to make it easier for the criminal to steal from them, its still stealing so what if they didnt have to break the window to get the goods the end result is still the same.

My main point being if the criminal knows the picking is easy it draws them to your hood to rob the locked autos and houses too.

I never made it sound like it was ok, merely pointed out if the car was not locked it was not broken into.

"Entering someones property and entering their auto and removing things that are not yours w/the intent to sell the stuff for profit wasnt legal last i knew the world over." The intend to sell stuff for profit is not part of the law pertaining to this. The mere act of taking said property is violation of the law regardless of intent to sell, keep or even destroy said illegally obtained property.

If the vehicle is damaged (ie breaking a window), that adds additional charges to the crime, typically vandalism. So, yes, it does make a difference if the vehicle is locked or unlocked.

Your attempt to be smart has failed.

Nah its just called lock ur car and home to protect your property, simple.

Putting your auto toys out of sight even when the auto is locked can keep you from getting a broken window and insurance claim.

If a car is not locked and entered, your property is removed thats theft, crime. Does it really matter if the car was broken into or left open?

Permission to be on your property and enter your vehicle is the start even before the theft.
