Thieves Strike Neighborhood Again

More Video...

Police are back in the Gleneagles subdivision investigating more break-ins.
This time, thieves broke into cars and homes.

At least one of their crimes was captured on home surveillance video.
There was a chase, but the suspects were able to get out of the neighborhood.

Over the weekend, someone stole several cars, and broke into others.
Police later recovered the stolen vehicles.

This morning, police are questioning people in the area.

Officers believe the suspects' car is still in the neighborhood.

    I just want to add "a little icing on the cake" here, if you will. I could not agree more with Nathan and his beliefs. He spoke his opinion in the most professional and error free way possible. Well done Nathan. I have grown up in the rich and the poor as well. I have seen what the rich and the poor do to people. To be honest (in my humble opinion), I belive it is the "rich" or the "upper class" kids who cause the biggest uproar more times than not. The "poor" or "lower class" people are too busy working SO HARD for their money just to make ends meet, that they dont have time to be involved in this type of behavior. I think we all need to be more neighborly to one another and stop pointing fingers. Use the gift the God gave to everyone (your brain) and your common sense, and lets put these criminals out of buisness by making their jobs that much harder.

    I was going to add a bit more but I believe Michael, Nathan and mel covered it in a nutshell. Great posts guys!

    I find it interesting to read all the comments, Positive and Negative,on this blog from people who live and don't live in the neighborhood. First of all, there were two seperate incidents that occurred within a three day span.The Police have not indulged all the information that they have since they are still in the "Process" of investigation. The incidents that occurred on Saturday morning appear to be a "Joyriding" excursion. This could have happened in "Any" neighborhood in Lexington. It just so happened to be in Gleneagles.Let's be patient and wait to see what the evidence shows before jumping to "Emotional Conclusions". It doesn't help the situation to start pointing fingers at anyone except the people that are responsible for their actions. Hopefully, Justice will be served and we will all find out that someone made a "Poor Decision" in their life, and will be held "Accountable". For the second occurrance, the individuals that came to the neighborhood on Tuesday morning, were just plain stupid or inebriated. They could not have thought through what they were going to do. When you violate someone's privacy, you may pay the ultimate price. So for a few dollars, they shouldn't have taken that type of risk.The main thing to remember for all of those in the community,is that no one got hurt or injured. The neighborhood needs to come together and wait to see what the Police find out. Whoever did these crimes will be caught, and they will be prosecuted. so until that happens, let's don't bring the community down, because it is a "Great Neighborhood" with everything that you would want to raise your family. "This too,shall pass"!!!!

    "I assure you that those living here don't have "idle hands"; they have calloused hands from working minimum wage jobs to try to make it in a trickle-down economy." Classic, true, very well written. Anybody care to call Nathan ghetto or criminal or uneducated? Seems to me this "low income apartment dweller" expressed himself more eloquently and with a lot less spelling/grammatical errors than the "respectable" neighborhood residents who are wringing their hands over their property value and running to attorneys to sue so they don't lose a precious dime of their money. Best of luck to you, Nathan. But for the grace of God, there would go I, and I don't ever want to forget that my whole world could crash in one single day and leave me where I would need financial help. You humble me.

    Bravo Nathan! Here is the really ironic part; Nathan lives in the so-called "ghetto" apartments as one poster called it but yet, his post has no grammatical or spelling errors...go figure. But if you look at the "high society" as others have put it, they do. Poor or low income does not mean criminal or stupid just like rich or middle income doesn't mean without fault or smart. Great post Nathan but next time, let's leave the politics out of it. Nobody is a winner in that arena; all taxpayers are losers to a certain extent. We surely aren't getting what we pay for but still, great post!

    I am a resident at Gleneagles apartments and take offense to what others have implied about low-income residents. I live in this community of people; they are considerate, God-fearing people. Just because people are low-income doesn't mean that they aren't human beings with hearts and souls. It seems that racism, prejudice, and sheer ignorance is what have played the role of blaming those who live in our apartments. I assure you that those living here don't have "idle hands"; they have calloused hands from working minimum wage jobs to try to make it in a trickle-down economy. They are trying to raise their families in a nice place. They are trying to move upward not backward. Shame on those of you who would jump to such conclusions. Perhaps if your luck were to change and you had to experience the life of not being middle class (which doesn't exist anymore, quite frankly) or "rich", you would certainly change your beliefs. You would realize that just because people are poor, they don't automatically become thieves. It's a shame that Bush can't run for office again. You "do gooders" won't have the chance to have a President who probably feels the same way about the poor.

    I am a resident of Gleneagles and I am furious with some of the statements made in this comments section. I'm not sure who Doug is, but I would bet that he is not a resident of Gleneagles. This whole situation has many neighbors concerned over the value of their property. I realize that we are not all the same and there is a difference between those that work hard to earn a good living to live in a nice neighborhood and those that made it in this neighborhood via low income means. I just don't like the idea of throwing money out the window so that we can have a low income apartment complex in our neighborhood. I've lived in Gleneagles for 7 years thinking I made a good investment. My home is the only bit of a savings that I have and I've worked hard to pay for it. This week feels like the market crashed to me because my investment on my home has taken a big hit. That is what our neighbors are concerned about! Don't sterotype us all to be rich snobs, that is not the case here. We are just destroyed with the fact that working hard and being honest has made us unfortunate targets. If you were a neighbor, you would understand the concerns. Or maybe you are just one of the neighbors that let your property run down and look like an eye sore and it doesn't seem to bother you that you are also destryong the value of your neighborhood. This is all about our homes and our lives and our futures. When you pay this kind of money and it becomes unsafe to raise your family, there is a bad problem. It has nothing to do with being rich, it is about being a descent individual that has earned the priviledge to live in a desired area and knowing that it is safe...and a good investment for your family.

    Don't try to blame the Homeowner's association for these thefts!! The apartments have nothing to do with it either!! It's an unfortuneate situation that this happened, but it could have happened anywere.
