Cary residents have the luxury of enjoying a high quality of life – which includes living in a Town of 140,000 people and not worrying much about crime – at least major crime – that’s why the news this week of several home break-ins while the families where home sleeping is big news & disturbing – the break ins occurred in the Lochmere area of Cary – a large planned unit development with lakes, walking trails, golf course etc (also home to yours truly).
Below is the press release from the Town of Cary – I usually do not cut and paste a blog post but with this I’m making an exception:
