@anonymous - don't know if the Police do as you say as SOP, but if not they should... Reminds me of what an insurance agent told me a long time ago... His advice was to ALWAYS make a permanent indicator in an inconspicuous spot on any expensive items...so it can be identified as yours if stolen & found.

Please Lacey Police if people are giving you a hint as to where these low life thieves could be please head there words and check it out.. They all might not pan out but some of these people do know what they are saying and you just might catch yourselves a bunch of burglers.. Please listen as its getting where you are afraid to leave your house for fear that when you get back it will have been robbed.. Thank you..
