New version of Toledo Talk
Baby monitors! I love 'em! - It happened Monday night at the North End Church of God. Neighbor James Laykins says the church has been broken into about 20 times over the last year. His wife, Kelli, came up with a plan to catch the bad guy. She decided to put one baby monitor in the church and the other in their house across the street.
I could hug these folks.

Ah, the ol' neighborhood in the news. Kudo's to that North End ingenuity.
Oh the stories of my youth sitting on the front stoop, oh how I have aged.
After 20 times, tho, is there much left to take?
I know where I will be sending my disaster relief contribution this year.

And they caught a bum looking for vodka, money or food, probably in that order. I'm surprised the TPD didn't bust the Laykins for something or other, just on general principles.

Yup... when it comes to places to find vodka, a church is always at the top of the list, and the Toledo Police just love to bust law-abiding ministers. Get a life, troll.

You should send a letter to the criminal, and be sure to include your address. When he gets out of the pokey, he can go to your place for vodka, money, and food, right? He's entitled to it, right?

Sure, he can come to my place anytime. He's entitled. He'll have better luck when I'm not home.
The point I was trying to make was that the TPD doesn't like mere civilians catching criminals, an activity exclusively reserved for the TPD and its LE allies.
