Thank goodness for neighbours

pMom just told me about this yesterday and it still gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Early one morning, just before dawn, a small group of men climbed the gates of the plink residence. Four of the five men were already inside when one of our neighbours saw them. She had come out early to do her laundry in the pre-dawn twilight. Our neighbour raised the alarm and scared the five would-be thieves away.

Sleeping soundly as I did, I knew nothing about the events until late yesterday.

Is it just me or is KL crime on the rise?
