    It would be good to get more details about “Park Car Prowls”, from Sue, at Westcrest.  Does “caught in the act” mean observed next to a broken window, actually seen breaking it, or…And who were they seen by?  I’ve noticed a small SUV periodically parked in the south lot that says “Phoenix Security” on the side.  Don’t know who they are, but did they see it?
    Unfortunately, it is highly unlikely the police will even respond to a 911 call if someone observes the referenced vehicle, without more information.  Does anyone have any?

Sorry, comment time is over.
