While we we in Orlando last week, we heard tell of a local gated community in Heathrow called "The Reserve" that was suffering break-ins and robberies similar to the recent crime spree in affluent West End neighborhoods here in Nashville.
The glaring difference was that while the West End robberies involved petty theft of purses and what-not, Heathrow residents had suffered losses of watches and jewels to the tune of $120,000.
Nonetheless, it appears that nobody is safe from break-ins nowadays. Not even well-paid security and private gates can keep the bad guys out. Maybe it's time to start spending more money on local crimefighters in our police departments.
