Remember Old Cape Cod where Patti Page promised “You’re sure to fall in love”?
Not so much anymore. This once quiet community of “quaint little villages” has reported one incredibly persistent home invasion.
The victim? A 77 year-old retired nurse with serious health problems that made her the target of eight attempted or completed home invasions — all designed, of course, to find and steal her prescription pain killers.
While this crime may be the most persistent home invasion we’ve ever heard of, local law enforcement points to mug shots lining the police department bulletin board. Most are “people active in the local drug trade,” police say.
