Couple's home burglarized days before their wedding
A couple whose home was recently burglarized contacted the station about their story. Crooks broke in days before their wedding. Gifts were among the items stolen. But that's only part of the story. They claimed responding officers took too long and then told them they were on their own. One officer even suggested they get a German Shepherd since police can't adequately keep an eye on things. The couple said the officers blamed recent budget cuts and the departure of many officers. MPD disputed the concerns by saying each precinct is fully staffed, despite a drop in the overall compliment of officers.
