    Interesting that they don’t include the vehicle break-in at Joost and Congo last Saturday night. We came out Sunday morning and someone had smashed in the back window of an SUV and had clearly stolen stuff out of it (there were discarded items around the truck). There was also a strong smell of gas and a piece of hose left behind, which made me wonder if they had also siphoned the gas out of the tank!

    Someone’s got to call it in to the police for it to be reported. I’ve been surprised at how often on one does.
