Curb Your Punks

Adventure time on Hyper's street today as 5 wannabe burglars decided to test police response time. Police won. Sharp eyed neighbor reported mini-perps and seven squad cars and the helicopter responded. Two adults and three juveniles were escorted from the house. Kudos to the neighbor and the police. Sunrise Drive is now just a little bit safer....

One person who drove through the scene managed to hit a police car...(burgundy car at left).... real bad timing and total embarrassment....
