Colorama burglary stems from a bigger problem
Letters to the Editor
Hello to the GC area. This was our 30th year in the Colorama Parade with our 1968 AMX. This has always been a great time of the year for us. That is -- except for this last time.
When we arrived on the 9th we found our little trailer house on View Place in Delano had been burglarized. The TV and related equipment were taken. They also took all our keys for the vehicles in the garage.
After we called the police, it took two hours for the Grant County sheriff to show up to take our statement and investigate the crime.
During the report, the officer told us that he knows where all the known druggies live, whom he suspects are responsible for the break in.
We talked to our neighbors and friends at the parade, and they also know about the local druggies and where they live. Our neighbors and friends feel that these local druggies are the ones responsible for most of the crimes committed in the area. They all ask the same question: why are not the local police doing anything about these people and the crimes they commit? They feel that the police are timid and express their concerns about the little action being taken about the frequent burglaries in this area.
A message to the druggies: Keep the TV. Please return the keys. They are of no use to you. You or a friend can toss the keys on the screened deck on the trailer behind the garage. Read the sign on the deck.
