This is scary and close to home. There was a attempted care break-in on 4/19 at Gray Eagle and Union and the police caught the suspect hiding in some bushes and it was never reported. We need to get this info from the Patch and see pictures so that we can be on the lookout for these people. We are on heightened alert in our neighborhood. Glad to have Sheriff's and marines close by.
