This article isn't very informative. It says 'most' cases were reported in RPM. Where were the others? The two mother-daughter cases were previously plastered all over the news. No new information there. Of the amount stolen, was any recovered? I am very critical of the article because it's empty, no meat.

Ross police, in general, don't reveal the names of victims. The article was designed to report on very general trends.

Rough crowd. Social media has created a lot of critics.
