About The Author



    I have lived in Montgomery County my whole life, and it seems that within the last 10 years the crime rate has just been going up & up. We have been robbed 4 times, yes, 4 times. The first time it was guns & jewelry, second time was what they didn’t get the first time of guns & jewelry, third time was our saddles and then the forth time was a brand new welder mounted on a trailer. Maybe if they find the guys you were shooting at they might find other stolen property, or would that be an invasion of their privacy. Well this story just fired me up, because if we had been home during any of our four robberies we would have done the same thing. We have yet to be contacted by a detective or any follow up. When the report was being filed the first thing we were asked was “Do you have insurance?”, well yes we did, and that is where it was left. So, all of that was to say, Good luck! hope that your home the next time they come back.
