There has been a lot of motorcycle thefts and car break ins in this area. I have reported to the Wallingford PD twice when they attempted to steal mine 2 weeks in a row! The area needs more of a police presence. There is a lot of drugs in the area(monte carlo bar), so the crack heads from over there could be part of the problem. Wallingford is a good safe place to live. It is a shame to see that change to a high crime area. Wallingford PD can make the difference.
Edit: The police have stepped up patrols. I will continue to call. We have also made contact with an agency that is going to make the motorcycle thieves wish they stayed home. This is going to be better than watching the fireworks when these thieves come back this year! It is poetic justice.
