    I live in comite hills west and I can say it was pretty crazy in the neighborhood that Sunday morning. I was awoke by the sound of a helicopter flying low overhead. I thought they were looking an escaped inmate because they had officers on every corner, dead end, and street. I must say that ebrso did a great job handling the case. This incident just shows you it can happen to anyone, anywhere without notice. My heart goes out to the victims on this one and I can’t imagine going through the same thing. I’m glad they caught those crooks, there is nothing lower than a thief in my opinion and I’m glad to see those losers in orange jumpers behind bars. A Message to future would be thieves, don’t mess with central, we don’t play around.

    Again, thanks for the assistance to the EBRSO and BRPD for capturing these losers so swiftly.
