The Township Republicans lied during their election that they kept crime down. It was smoke and mirrors and everyone fell for it. Next time, lets get rid of these corrupt phonies.

@Monmouth Moms REALLY? By showing your unique ability to slander and group together a variety of people, you also show your ignorance and true misunderstanding of the issue at hand. The "republicans" didn't do this to you! Your "township republicans" are sock puppets for conservative democrats and operate under the same pretenses you would expect from any side. AND REGARDLESS OF ALL OF THAT, most of these instances of "stolen items" in this article could be nothing. Either nothing was taken, or there was no sign of entry, probably due to a misplacement of an items and the "victim" assumed it to be a case or larceny. Take a second to get off your stop huffing and puffing about other people and ANALYZE the situation before jumping to MORE conclusions.
