Great, now let's get back to the cases that have been dragging on for two years.

Come on now! Mr. Simpkins does not need to put the blame on the victims... of course we should know to lock our car doors, but this is not the first of these type of thefts. Since I have been living in this neighborhood (9 years) this has been a very common type of theft. Just last week in broad daylight a neighbor left his car running on his driveway, ran into the house for 2 minutes and came out to see his car being driven away. Yes, we may suffer from a false sense of security, because we live in a "safe" area, but... Let's do a better job of patrolling the area, add some more shifts... Catch someone finally, punish them and publicize the punishment and the fact that the police are patrolling more... Do something Police Chief!!!

JCS: What?!! You want to blame the police for not providing 24 hour patrols, instead of blaming the "victims" who could have secured their own property?? AND, you want the taxpayers to front spending MORE money to capture, prosecute, and prevent this kind of preventable theft? I'm sorry, I think we have more important things to spend our money on.... Thanks Danville Weekly for running the story to help remind us to secure our own valuables.
