    Almost Forgot...

    Caught a guy peeking in car windows on our street Friday morning. I was leaving for work about 5:30 am and this guy was at our neighbors house bent over and looking in his car window..... He then came up the street and he sorta hunkered down and looked away as he went by. He crossed the street and went on down the street and I saw him peep in a guys suv window down the street.

    I then walked back in to the kitchen and called the law.....chatted with the dispatcher a few minutes....got my coffee and got back out in time to see two cop cars running around the neighborhood.

    I stood out in the street for a while and then saw down the street that cuts or street in half.... I live at an intersection.... but down the street I saw yellow flashing lights....

    Locked the door and got in my truck and drove down there.......they had him.. I had to go down a bit so I could turn around but when I got back to where they had that guy stopped everyone was gone.

    I assume they got him as he was no longer on the street.

    Even without a confirmed b&e here they could be charged with Loitering and Prowling for sneaking around in the dark

    Yeah but he cheated us out of prime thread material. We could have run Corny's saga out to 50 pages of silly comments and conspiracy theories. Not to mention the spectacle of HVAC wrench-turners moonlighting as Dick Tracy and prosecution and defense lawyers.

    Flashers generally indicate an arrest, especially a pedestrian. He probably had warrants. Congratulations on good community service.

    But going to work at 5:30 AM is just wrong. I am not sure if I breath or have a pulse at that time of day. I have been told I snore, but she was probably lying about that also.

    Geez corny I figured you could have at least done like Zimmerman and try to take care of the situation yourself. Disappointed here. LOL. Thank you, thank you very much
