@11:22AM Thanks for posting that old news that was copied and pasted from MoCo Police.

Hold off on the Edward R. Murrow Award.

11:22: You just made a buffoon out of yourself again. I have already reported all of these crimes weeks ago. The lack of specific details about the crimes shortly after they occur is a shortcoming of Montgomery County Government, which declines to make available the level of details that neighboring jurisdictions like DC make readily available for their residents.

What you have cut-and-pasted here is old news, and unlike the timely crime reports I provide on this blog, of little use in alerting residents to current crime waves in their neighborhood.
