    No one was asking for anything. Vanceboro is not a big city and we live in the country part of town. When you have lived somewhere for so long and are used to a safe environment sometime you just dont think to lock doors. Almost everyone on our "block" is family. Locking doors usually is a habit my mom keeps, but it was just an oversight that night. After hearing what some of you said about my family and other around having asked for this...you are ignorant! I can only hope that one day something is stolen from your family out of a car, but I hope your doors are locked so that you also have busted windows!! Maybe then you will regret saying what you did! Hava a GREAT day!

      It's not any nicer to 'hope something is stolen' from someone else, just so you can feel better about a post you don't like on a website. Other posters have a right to their POV too.

        They were being ignorant, I was making a point.....Besides, you said everyone is entitled to have feelings on the matter, those are mine! :)

    WITN I did not see this on the news this morning. Please air this story so we can be sure to catch this guy.

    Who leaves anything unlocked these days? It is not the 1950's. If you leave anything of value in your car or house for that matter you are a sitting target. Get real it is 2012. That's what locks are intended for to keep things safe or at least make it harder for the stupid criminal to take your belongings. Dumb to take it Dumber to leave your cars/houses unlocked.

    There was a young(17-19yrs old)white girl going door to door about 11pm last weekend. She claimed that she was out of gas on the bridge on Old Washington rd and that her mother lived down Purser rd and needed a ride to her house. Lucky she had already been to my neighbors house the week before and had told him the same story... She was only trying to get someone to take her to a location so that the black guy she hangs around with in Vanceboro could rob someone...

          She was walking up and down road going door to door the night she came to my door. She is about 5'4 110lbs and has blonde hair. She looked to be on some kind of drugs...

    I feel that leaving a weapon in an unlocked car is VERY irresposible. Might as well leave the keys in the vehicle.

    I leave my car door unlocked. No trigger locks either.
