New construction – not just new homes, new hopes, dreams, operating systems … but opportunities for thieves to steal tools, vandals to start fires and parties and shootings, apparently.

You may have heard but early during the construction of (this neighborhood), one of the neighbors called the police because a model home seemed to have activity in it late one Saturday night.
When the police arrived, they believe up to 60 young adults scurried from the home into the woods.
