I called the Sheriff just a couple of weeks ago because someone "doorbell ditched" at 3 in the morning. We need to be alert and keep an eye out for each other. I am glad our officers around here do just let things slide, there are rules for many reasons. Thank you San Mateo County Sheriff officers!

PV Res: Excellent point, neighbors watching out for neighbors the best crime prevention.

Bell Haven res: He is too stupid for a life of crime. He should have known Friday the 13th is not a good day for criminals who have the stolen goods in the vehicle. So, money for bail, money for the towing and storage of the vehicle. Cop 1 crook 0
