Unfortunately, burglaries are on the rise here in Auburn (Journal, June 23). On Monday morning, at 7, someone stole my son’s quad from our home here on Lilac Lane. After speaking with neighbors – I have learned that in my neighborhood alone, a truck and a dirt bike also were stolen this past month. And, there have been cars gone through and tires slashed. Last night my neighbor caught two gentlemen in his driveway — despite the quick response from the Sheriff’s Department, they evaded the deputies. So, beware. Times are hard and slimeballs are prowling in not only my neighborhood, but yours, too. Lock your belongings up tight. Stay in contact with your neighbors and report anything suspicious.
