Statistically speaking it may be, but it sure doesn't feel that way.Living in the MLPA, VAHi area, we are still overrun by thieves. We hardly see police patrolling, especially in Johnson Estates where trucks & buses are speeding at 50+ miles an hour & thieves on stolen bikes and scooters rummage through our garages & cars. We stopped eating out in many neighborhood restaurants because of car break-ins. Celebrate statistical drop in crime?
