I want to start this letter by saying that what I have learned in this journey of being victimized and our home burglarized is that the police do not have the resources to do their job — "protect and serve." They do not have enough police, enough equipment to handle the solving of crimes, or a willingness to work between jurisdictional lines. What you see on those cop shows is very far from the real world.
Here I was very excited when a friend called me and said to get a copy of the Glendale News-Press, as he thought the woman I encountered at my home four days prior to the burglary was one of the three suspected "knock-knock burglars" caught in Glendale ("Burglary suspects arrested," May 5).
As soon as I saw the picture I was thrilled. It was her. For three days I tried to contact the detective handling the case to tell him I could identify one of the suspects. After numerous attempts, when I talked with the detective in charge and asked what they found when they issued a search warrant on each of these ladies' homes, he said they weren't going to.
