Having lived in such a "safe" place as Crested Butte [Colorado] for the last 20 years, my idea of securing my vehicle is throwing the key under the floor mat. At 4:00am this morning, my horn started going off from the kid in my truck stepping on the panic button. I dialed 911 as he rode off on his bicycle. Cops caught them on Bay Shore. Two late-teenagers from Aransas Pass with backpacks full of binoculars, sunglasses, car keys, radar detectors and a HANDGUN!, said they were riding their bikes around looking at "nice houses."
When cops came to the house, I really couldn't find anything missing out of my truck so they said they would have to release the suspects since I couldn't identify them. When Teresa said "Even though they stole a gun?," the policewoman said "You are in Texas."
At the last minute I noticed my Grandfather's tobacco pipe was missing so I went and identified it. They were able to charge that kid (who had the gun), but may have released the other kid not being able to prove the items in his backpack were not his.
Not that big of a deal, but I thought this is something local homeowners should know about. It was a good "wake up call" for us. I'm not sure what the police will do. Let me know if you have any thoughts about this.
