    Great job BPD. Now if you all and CHP can just find the perps who stole my good friends’ car from a MMSA parking lot last week while he was working then abandoned it off a dirt road behind Laws leaving it with smashed in windows, lights, mirrors and center console, I’d really commend you! Someone has to know something?!
