As the news spreads about a disturbing spike in day time burglaries across Kootenai County, people on Friar Drive in Hayden are already helping friends who have become victims. “It's definitely takes a hit that you can't trust everyone around you and guard your stuff,” Hayden resident Mindy Newby said. Chris Pleski was driving by when she noticed someone walking away from a neighbor's house towards a car she didn't know.
“I was bothered because it's a nice neighborhood,” Pleski said. “I looked at him but didn't pay much attention.” Later that day she found out thieves kicked in the door and snatched jewelry and guns. “We are kind of isolated; we live far apart from each other. It's scary,” she said/Anusha Roy, KXLY. More here.
