Neighbors of Priest Lake Forest Condominiums are working together by forming a neighborhood watch in an effort to help police catch burglars who have been breaking into homes in their neighborhood. In the last two weeks, resident Laurie Glass said thieves have attempted to break into her home multiple times. "One time I actually came home and they jimmied this door and had it off the track and they tried to, I don't know if it was a crow bar or a knife and get in the lock and that did not work," she said. Glass continued, "[I'm] nervous, this has always been relatively quite. I have lived here since '93. I have never had an issue with anything." she said. Glass added the suspects have also tried to gain access to her home through upstairs and downstairs windows. "They tried to get in the window and the sensor on the home alarm went off," she said. The homeowner told Nashville's News 2 she even installed a hidden surveillance camera which caught the thieves in action, however they have yet to be taken into police custody."I feel like the more we help the police, the sooner they will be caught," Glass explained. Glass said Metro police has been responsive to the incidents and have increased patrols in the area.Anyone with information on the incidents is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
