I live a couple doors down from this attempted robbery. The morning call did not mention that this is the 3rd attempted robbery and one was a robbery in the past month over here... We all think it is the same guy.... We all have heard it has been years since a robbery has happened in this town... now look... I am afraid. There is no place safe anymore.. I hope they catch him! becuase if he comes in my house he may have a problem!

I seen a gray dodge cargo van from the 80s on 512 today at 4:34 pm heading southbound just north of 22, if i see it again i'll give the plate # to a relative in the force and see what he comes up with. I'll get a good look at the driver first, though. No innocents :)

buy a gun, get a pitbull, or a poodle!!! lock your doors, keep a a meat cleaver close by, and have your husband sty home and work from home, or go away all day !!! lots of choices , heck Boyer's hardware is up the street to buy guns and in walnutport is a place to buy guns!!! Or go to K-Mart buy a squirt gun and fill it with muratic acid and squirt it in his eyes that will ouch and have him run away!!!

People themselves need to start taking responsibility and secure their homes better, solid steel doors with steel frames and good deadbolts with 3 inch screws.Secure windows properly, use lights outside at night, get professional securiy systems installed. Get a dog tha barks, buy a good gun and learn how to use it properly. People, stop being the victim and learn how to fight back, it's the only choice that you have.
