4. Reader Comment of the Day: "Time to send a message to these thieves that come into Tewksbury and prey upon our property. Recently they are all from other towns targeting us. We all need to have a watchful eye for each others homes in these times. Enough is enough! Kudos to the police for apprehending these criminals but unfortunately they won't do any real time. The cycle of crime will continue with no shortage of low life's who could care less about anyone. Mandatory 10 years for breaking and entering in my opinion, that might be a start to slow this crime." Reader John Smith, commenting on the story, "Burglary Suspect Arrested Twice In Two Days."
