    Most of the news in the AV is crime related. That’s what the news is and AV Times doesn’t sugarcoat it like the AV Press or the Time Warner channel 3 news station. Thank you AV Times. I know what I’m in for when I go to the store, the movie theatre, the mall or the Blvd. This is exactly why I don’t carry a purse or wear jewelry.

      Hi James,
      The incident was July 25 not June 25, so the sheriffs are not late with getting the information out. It was my error and I corrected it.
