    Just brings back painful memories of when my back door was kicked in while I was at church last year. Necklaces stolen but the most painful thing was a necklace my late husband gave me was taken. The detective said it probably went to the gold buyers the next day. They recovered a few sterling necklaces but no gold. They arrested 4 people running an elaborate operation, renting a motel room to put the stolen goods in. I’m sure more people were involved. The law needs to be stricter. The criminals need to suffer. No justice for the victim.

    The irony is that Steel’s has been robbing Valdosta for years.

    What happened to the alarm?

    I had wondered also why nothing was mentioned about their alarm system. However, the neighbor who alerted police may have been their first warning before the alarm had a chance to go off.
