these crime blotters really keep me at ease and feeling safe! thank god nothing serious happens in our area and the only arrests are for dwi and shoplifting at costco and burlington coat. Open up your eyes people, if this is what you really think happens day in day out, your in the clouds too...This is far from the complete list of incidents that occur in this time frame. The county wants us to think it is! Where are all the home burglaries in woodmere, where are the stick ups in north lawrence or the little small scale riot at an inwood housing complex. It's open season on cars and anything that isn't nailed down lately in Lawrence. Wait until our 4th pct. is merged with the 5th soon. Not taking a jab at the patch for reporting, you can only report what's provided to you. And our local cops are chasing down thugs and making arrests too for far more serious stuff than the petty thefts at our retail stores we read about. Tell us what really goes on around here ED!
