It's a damn shame this robbery stuff is getting more common by the day ... BUT.. In the same respect I can't believe people are leaving their wallets and pocketbooks in their cars,locked or not ! I lived in Eagleville for 32 yrs. and NEVER in yrs passed worried about open windows,unlocked doors, ect. but those days have gone about 7 yrs ago. things have changed around here.. It's called drugs,recession,and just plain lack of respect ! The more they build up Eagleville/Trooper the more problems we are going to have. The quiet little town is becoming just an extension of Norristown. It's a damn shame

well the bus comes along Ridge and drops people off in Trooper, Eagleville from Ridge, some of whom aren't the best people in town. That has more to do with the crime rate than 'building up' town.

This is true although many robberies are not going to be done at houses on side roads from people getting off the busses. They are more likely done by kids who live here.(lack of respect) I see it everyday even on my street the teens that walk around like little hoodlums, not afraid of their parents beause they know the law protects them from anything their parents can dish out.. The good teens that are around have parents that aren't afraid of their kids or the law.
