Finally spring is approaching! The days are getting longer, the temperatures are getting warmer and plans for gardening, outdoor parties and weekend getaways dominate conversations at dinner tables and water coolers. We all have different ways of coming out of hibernation this time of year. We like to think of all the wonderful things that spring brings. It is easy to forget the nuisances of warmer weather.
As the temperatures rise, sadly so does criminal activity. While most of us start planning a much needed weekend getaway or outdoor BBQ, there is some petty criminal planning their next break in or theft. Most decent people in the world think of spring as a refreshing time of renewal. Unfortunately there is some jerk out there that just can't wait to vandalize a building or steal a car.
