Not shooting my mouth off bally, just speaking from personal experience.

Someone was lurking around on my street this afternoon that looked like he was up to something looking around constantly, not sure if it was the suspect - as it was my neighbor that spotted him around my house while I was at work. Hopefully this guy is caught soon and doesn't cause anyone harm.

This guy will wind up taking a bullet and then the hero home owner will be turned into a criminal gun owner by the media.... as far as MPD goes, I have nothing bad to say about them, they do their job and do it well. Better then many other PDs out there!

Two weeks ago Sunday 5PM I saw two figures running around the back sides of homes on Buckinghamd Dr in Leisure Knoll. I called the cops and they came right away and did a sweep of the area. They saw lots of foot prints in the snow, but of course the figures were gone by then.
