All the following incidents have taken place over the last several weeks. By themselves they may not seem to be anything to worry about. But when you look at them as a group, you should start to wonder what is going on.
Several weeks ago around 6 in the morning a couple noticed something odd going on in their truck parked in the driveway. 2 men were rummaging around inside the vehicle. The men were questioned by the owner of the truck and it was determined that the 2 men had used the truck as a free flop house. Who knows, the 2 men could have gotten away with a little more than the tongue lashing they received by the owner.
Just the other week a family was awakened by an intruder that had made his way into their apartment. That situation could have escalated into something more than a man wandering and disorientated.......
Last week the A-Bay International was broken into. The thieves pummeled the front door getting away with an undisclosed amount of cash and merchandise.
Yesterday a vehicle was stolen from a mans driveway, but later discovered abandoned at another part of the village.
So what is going on? I see Police in cars, on bikes and on foot. I sometimes wonder if our local PD is fixated with the loop. The loop is James St., Church St., Walton St., and Market. All the above incidents occurred outside of this loop. Before the tourist season started I used to see the PD patrol car perched at the car wash...religiously....every night. I have not seen them at all lately. Also, one evening I saw 2 police officers on bike patrol riding up and down James St side by side. And of course, Bolton Ave is always very well patrolled.
Not trying to make you paranoid.....just bringing some of the local blotter stuff to your attention. The stuff that never gets printed in the Local Happy Tabloid. Lock your vehicles and your home doors and windows.
