I live on Macon. If this is happening why aren't the rest of the residents informed on Macon. Did they catch the people involved? Can we get a little more info other than what happened?

Daniel, this is the information police release to the media. You'd have to ask them yourself, but my guess is the police will tell you they lack the manpower to alert neighbors about break-ins and rely on neighbors to get the word out. I write up the police blotter daily and I do not believe there's been an arrest in this case. Burglaries are notoriously hard to solve because the items taken are usually sold or pawned, and police have to rely on someone admitted their role in a case if they have no other evidence.
