Well, the conspicuous consumption in Brier Creek has put their lovely gated HOA protected enclaves on criminal radar screens.

Guess those McMansions and juicy SUV's have got our local burglars salivating and thirsting for yuppie goodies.

I better pick up some shells today in case Raleigh PD sends the rifraff down my way. Would be a serious mistake for them.

So, you aren't escaping crime like you thought by coming here, eh?

I think this post is totally unnecessary. Why do people hate people simply because they have money? Bitter much? and no I am not rich myself...

I don't think its people in general. Moderator cut: removed I don't see any reason for condemning someone's lifestyle just because I don't live it.

I grew up in the suburbs of NY in the 1980s and early 1990s. I know what a yuppie is. I don't really understand why you think this area is filled with them. I didn't realize wanting a good life for your family was such an evil thing. I would be more cautious in judging people's motives (the term yuppie implies people are purposely showy to prove how successful they are) and being gleeful that they are victims of crime.

This is a strange thread.

Back to the subject-the crime wave in Brier Creek.

Most of the burglaries involve unlocked cars and garages left open. I don't care where you are or how much money you do or don't have. Those are foolish decisions. Protect yourself and your belongings.

Can I just ask a question here?.....If people have 2 car garages, why don't they put their cars in them? I don't mean this sarcastically.
I come from NYC, born and raised, so always have eyes in back of me (so to speak). I always lock my car doors, always have my home alarm on (and I live in a very safe area), and if I had a garage, I would park my car in it.

Yes someone I know once wondered aloud why they had their 45k SUV in the driveway but $300 worth of kids toys in the garage.

I have a 2-car garage, but we only use one side for a car. Cooperwx nailed it...we really have too much stuff, so the other side is for storage. Most garages now are too small to fit 2 cars and more than a couple of boxes, so with bicycles, kids toys, a lawn mower, camping gear, etc... the other side can't be parked on.
