Looking for a Burgler

I’ve been hearing sirens for the last half hour.  They are loud and echoing through the neighborhood.  There are no police or fire vehicles visible as far as I can see.

Curiosity got the better of me so I called Shoreline Police non-emergency number and asked what was going on, they are “Looking for a burglar”.

I’m not going to pretend I know squat about police work but I would think if you were looking for a burglar you would want to be as stealthy as possible, not announce your presence every thirty seconds so said burglar knows where you are and heads the other direction, or stays in hiding.

Maybe this is just their way of saying, “Your tax dollars at work.”
