The Investigators: Keeping would-be school burglars at bay during summer months
This was the first "sweeps" piece I've done in a while. Lawyers killed the last two-parter after pressure from a business owner. Anyway.. This one is about the number of school burglaries during the summer. The piece was prompted by burglaries that happened in the days after the last day of school this year. I got quick responses for data from both Shelby County Schools and MPD. A guy we saw running past one of the schools we profiled provided great feedback on the subject.
