This is a little bit over the top. Jacking, arson, robbery, kidnapping, and more starting in Souderton. Maybe we will have to put a tollgate at the Rt.309 off ramps and use the proceeds for cameras and what-not to deter crime. This assumes of course that the road is a conduit for criminals. I think this is true and times are getting tougher, forcing crooks into the 'burbs.

I thought that this crime was terrible, too. Then somebody suggested today in a conversation that maybe it was just a little TOO crazy to be real.... as in, couldn't afford the car payment anymore, gotta make it go away.

Staged? I hope so... I'd hate to think that this actually happened in our community.

Staged or followed home? The worst case could be that you are known for carrying cash and someone you know put you through that. If it was staged like the Hilltown Radio Shack robbery it will be found out.
