The chain saw stolen out of the back of a truck is the Wal Mart parking lot area. Said 1800 block Central Park.

We all need to watch for thieves starting to ruin our safe little spot. Normally we can be at peace knowing our cars are unlocked and the purses and coats in buggies are safe.

Get on the ball now. Starting to see gang writing, at post office and some signs vandalized. Crime riden Denver got out of control because years ago Denver did nothing to stop gang thugs with drugs. Now Denver is not even safe to visit. We on the mountain should not say this, but we call Denver "The Sewer Cess Pool". Knip theft and gang grafitti now before we have an eternal problem like Denver.

Signs to watch for while at Wal Mart parking lot,

1) Vans with tinted windows or cars with dark tints. Like to sit sometimes on the ends or edges where whole parking lot can be viewed. 2) Abnormally baggy clothes with a huge duffle bag. Prefer sunglasses even on rainy day. Lots of pockets for storage. 3) Mostly work in 2's or 3's. One person is the watch dog. 4) Easy to spot. If planning to get in car, keep looking around to see if anyone is looking. Leer into cars as they creep/walk by and scan the contents usually smoking to give the laid back look so slow walk seems normal. On trucks they sometimes pretend to lean on it to see whats in the back. 5) Knowing Wal Mart has cameras they mostly wear hooded clothing and keep hoods on head. Also the license plate is missing in their vehicle and a fake paper temporary plate sometimes is in the window but you cant read it of course because of the tints. 6) Never approach these dangerous thugs. Call law enforcement for help. Put you sunglaases on and head down if viewing from a car. Your eyes can gather much information looking up but all the thug sees your head down and not paying attention. Place your head in the furthest direction away from the thug but yet can still se what he's doing. 7) If this becomes a real frequent problem, take control to end this by always going to Wal Mart in 2's. One person always stays in car, one goes inside shopping. Thugs seeing several cars with people inside are usually afraid they will be caught.
