Default Cops 1,Jerks 0

I woke up last night with bad heartburn and while I was sitting on the edge of the bed I hear noise in the parking lot next door.
Noise is nothing new here and I even recognized the voices as the trash punks accross the street,but what made me think was that they were trying to be quiet(not the norm for them @ 1:30 am)
I got up to get a better look and guess what.....they had broken into a van parked on the street.
I call the local PD and give the details and while I'm on the phone they keep going back for more (the van belongs to a market chain)and I'm giving a play by play while Cops are enroute.
PD shows up and the punks are on their front porch and based on the description are busted!
My call wasn't the only one and with multiple witnesses my neighborhood should be a little quieter Saturday

+1 for the phone call.

I live just miles from East St. Louis and as you may well know it is quite uncommon for people who have information about, or even witness crimes, to call the cops. But yet when something happens to them, they cry foul that the police cant help!

There was some 20/20 or 60 Minutes segment on this...I think they called it "Don't Snitch"....Must be the "culturally correct" thing to do. It is "cool" not to help the cops....

Good for you! This is the kind of community involvement that makes law-enforcement work. Keep it up and advise your neighbors to do the same!

Sounds like my weekend...

Only I was the jerk (I wasn't stealing, I was drunk and in the wrong apartment.)
