My neighbors were broken into on a Sunday morning, they are the only ones ever gone on Sunday AM & always at the same time. I have two issues with what happened. First, I find it interesting that this occurred after the Contractors for Edison were in the neighborhood for weeks replacing poles, with the freedom to move in and out of our yards seven days a week. Secondly, I have security cameras that clearly visualized the car involved and the three young men who actually invaded their home. These young men were caught in OC with my neighbors belongings in their possession (I Phone, computer, etc) later that afternoon. Either on their person or in the vehicle used. They are all from the Inland Empire (why would they be here at 8am on a Sunday?) and not only did the OC Police Dept do NOTHING... But our fearless Long Beach PD would not even press charges! Does anyone wonder why crime is up?? These criminals know they can get away with it!! If we are lucky they may get a slap on the hand, WOW.... That's what our tax dollars are paying for!!
