These are burglaries, not robberies. They don't cut phone lines, cuz their whole purpose of to be there when ur not.

Helen is correct in reporting that phone and cable lines are being cut in these burglaries. Mtown Talker, or shall we say, Mayor John Button knows this to be true, right Mayor?

Now, wait a minute. "that guy" and "Helen" talked about phone and cable lines

Why would a burglar cut a cable TV Line ? BTW, no lines were cut. I live across the street from the 2nd house broken into. Stop spreading stupid lies.

Don't know why I bother responding to RR/ Helen/ Frank, since I'd take bets it's the same goof. Police (5 or 6) were out as soon as it was reported. Talking to neighbors, gathering info, letting people know what happened. An email (notifying people what happened) was sent out (within hours) to anyone that is registered on the township system.
