    Let see reason here. Unemployment checks got cut off and when you do get one check a month, you are already broke. So to feed the habit of drug users this what low life’s will do. Even alcoholic’s!!

    Why wouldn’t you lock your car? Seriously? Just because Medina isn’t Cleveland doesn’t mean crime doesn’t happen. I can’t believe that this is even a news article and the guy on TV was surprised his stuff was stolen. Well, genius, if you lock your car, thieves looking for an easy pick will go to the next car.

    It can happen in broad daylight too. I used to work in Medina in the square. Our parking lot was behind our building, which was visible to us as our office had windows facing the lot. Somebody got into my manager’s car when no one was looking and took his stereo. His car wasn’t locked.

    Don’t want your stuff stolen? Don’t want to be made an easy victim? LOCK IT UP, be it your car, your house, or even your bike.
