Another thread made me think about posting this and I didnt want to hijack anyones post! We have lived here for going on 11 years, each spring it starts. There is a guy that seems to get a kick out of prowling around single womens residences. Everyone BUT the police know who it is, though they probably DO know. He is from an influential family and seems like he can get away with anything. Its WHO you are in this town.Sad but true. I stopped calling about it after being ridiculed constantly and took matters into my own hands by getting good locks and my dogs. I dont leave my daughter here alone. There are heavy shades,drapes on the windows at night. I make sure there is nothing outside he can steal. Thank goodness for small things, he has left us alone for the most part because several years ago he came onto the front porch at 1 am and tried the door. I had fallen asleep on the couch. My dog went through the screen porch window and scared the bejeebers out of him. I dont know HOW he got off the porch so fast but he must have been moving pretty good!! The dog continued to slam himself against the closed porch door....enough so it shook the house and woke my daughter up. The worst thing he did to us last warm season was steal vegetables...I wasnt pleased about that either. He doesnt stick around our property too long though, I know its revenge for having been run off. BUT he doesnt learn his lesson and targets other women. I get so disgusted with the whole business. Its the pink elephant in the room, the wide open "secret". Yep, just a minor rant on my part, thanks for listening.
