Elderly Dickinson man was beaten, tied up, house ransacked, by three men who jumped the back fence. Prescription medications stolen.

Wife in wheel chair was not harmed.
Man, that's a fairly new, and nice, subdivision down the road from me!! Bet I won't answer door or check security light trip without caution and protection.
"Nice subdivision". Exactly why it was targeted.
If you were a criminal, would you go rob a poor subdivision? (where people do not have much money)
Would you go rob a trailer park? (where people have plenty of shotguns)
Wouldn't you much rather go rob a liberal neighborhood full of voluntary victims ready to submit and hand over whatever they got?

Criminals aren't exactly smart but they are smart enough to rob the nice neighborhoods.
About 60% Republican around here, and, no bars on any widows. But, times are changing and so are the criminals' tactics and aggressiveness. More and more of these invasions and driveway jackings are starting to happen in neighborhoods once only plagued with occasional car break-ins or maybe an occasional burglary.

It happens. We once found a spider monkey sitting on the curb near Alabama and Mandell (a middlin' centralish part of Houston). We couldn't find anyone in the neighborhood looking for it, so one of my friends adopted it and it lived in the dorm at Rice for a few years, until graduation (ours, not his), when it moved out to the farm his parents had retired to.
Wow!!! Always wanted a monkey when I was younger. One just falls in your lap! Well, TPWD is saying this is a chimpanzee (not sure where they know this), and he's reported to be harassing. They better find this guy or the whole town is gonna be out hunting tonight.

Re: TX:The mean streets of Houston

This morning, woman in the neighborhood claimed on our community FB page to have been attacked. Come to find out, there have been sightings of culprit going back a few days and LE was already looking. Anyways, interesting happenings!!!

"Animal control officers are roaming parts of Santa Fe in search of some type of monkey that has been reportedly sighted in parts of Santa Fe."

"There are unconfirmed reports the monkey has been aggressive towards people."

Not Houston, but not that far of South Houston. Home invasion caught on camera a few miles from me. 4 suspects, heavily armed: https://www.khou.com/article/news/crime ... 06cc4e0d92
"There were people in the home but no one was hurt."
Wait .. what?
4 perps enter the home with people in it and 4 perps leave unharmed?
FAIL!!! :mad5
Subsequent reports are that family, many occupants, were in the payday lending business and known to carry home cash for next day deposits. Being investigated as possible inside job, or at least by some who knew the deposit habits. That day, they didn't have cash but did have cell phones taken, of which, had tracking software leading to disposal site in South Houston.
