I love on the State Line off of John Smith, as does my MIL. She just called and told us somebody got robbed, but about 5 teens, and a couple are still loose and armed. We have loaded the guns, there has been sherrif cars in the area, but I have no other information. We just now turned on the scanner, is this true does anybody know? Comforting!

Was it the gas station that got robbed or a home?

What store got robbed last Friday?

This is getting scary.

We all live Tate and John Smith area, the robbery was on East Culberson Rd, there is still 2 running around in the woods, lovely.... We are hearing this from Kev's aunt and Uncle up the road, they are elderly and could have facts wrong, sorry if they do. If you leave your keys in your cars like us, get them out.

It was a house tonight, I would post the name, but not sure if the person would appreciate that, but he lives on East Culberson rd.

Thanks so much Betsy. Guess I'll stay up for a few hours more. Never leave your keys in the car. We have had thousands of dollars worth of lumber and other items taken from our job sites in this area. Now we finish the garage first and get the doors on before storing anything in this area.

My MIL heard they are teens, hear is what gets me...... If one broke into my home and I shot him, for the rest of my life I had to live with the fact that I killed a KID! Yes, they should not be doing this, but do they not know the consequences? Come on we live in a 2 red light county, surely they know we will arm our homes.


Please guys if I have facts wrong, do not get mad at me, I am just repeating the phone calls we get.

I am learning that even in this neck of the woods we are not exempt from crime, this stinks.

Most of the crime has everything to do with the drug problem, but sometimes I wonder how many cabins have been built with some of our missing materials.

That stinks, I would even be more mad if it was another builder taking food off my family's table. Way off topic, but somebody stole ALL Justin Gaines's fathers roofing tools after Justin went missing. The nerve.... The bad thing is they had no idea when they went missing because they did not work for so long. People are so senseless.
Alright everytime my dogs make a nose I am all ears.

My husband thinks the area is clear because he saw 2 cop cars heading towards teh Murphy hwy on Tate, if they were still looking for them I do not think they would be heading that way, bu tI could be wrong.

This is really scary to hear! It makes me really nervous to know that I'm not there to protect my stuff. I can't tell hubby, cause he will remind me that this is why he wanted property only! I'm just glad that I have people that constantly checking on it for us. Only 25 more days!!!
