Or maybe try to water his lawn if a resident, and get a ticket for doing it on the wrong day....or get ticketed for not having a license for his dog.

Amen people....why all these unsolved robberies and crimes....yet be sure you don't park in 10 minute parking for eleven minutes because they will get you. How bout patrolling our neighborhoods?!?

Amen people? Really? How about thinking like an adult and realizing while yall are tucked away in your comfy Elmhurst homes, the police are out there dealing with the scum of the world, drunk drivers, doped up @%s Holes and yes, simple parking and traffic violations. Get over it. The police are way, way out numbered and simply can't be sitting in front of every store or gas station waiting for Mr. or Mrs. Offender to show up. The crime took merely seconds to committ and poof, he's into the darkness. EPD is good. They'll get this guy.

Time will tell. Let's see how long it takes them to catch this guy. Oh, and what about those TCF Bank robbers? They're still out there somewhere.
