Springs Woman Seeks Help For Those Stealing From Her


Despite three recent break-ins to her vehicle, a Springs woman is not seeking revenge.

"I put a note on my car saying 'next time you want something from my car, please knock on the door, because it would have been much nicer,'" Sharp said. She lives on Bijou.

Not only did the burglars have the nerve to break into Christine Sharp's car three different times--they left tools behind to break in again. But Sharp says she's not seeking vengeance on those targeting her; she simply wants to encourage better behavior.

"They're vandalizing just for the fun, it's not to steal," Sharp said. She pointed out that in three times her car has been broken into, only a GPS and two CDs have been stolen. The damage to her car has been far more costly than the value of the property stolen.

Sharp tells 11 News that she wants to help and heal the young people she believes are responsible.

"I feel that they are so lost, and I want to...rather than accuse them, help them.

"It's not gong to help to put them all way in jail and prisons...they need to learn, they will inherit this planet someday, and that's what's important."

If you know anything about this break-in, or any others in the Old Colorado City area, call Crime Stoppers at 634-STOP.

    "Castle Law"? I will assume you are talking about the Make My Day law. And that law is for the entire State, not just El Paso County.

    Also, that law only applies when someone breaks into your home, not when you invite them in.

    I finally saw the video footage that accompanied the limited written account. She is very sincere, obviously not a jaded Westerner. Her name and general location, and now pictures of the inside of her house are on the web. I wish her well staying safe, and hope she gets a realistic grip on her vulnerability. A good dog, and good neighbors are worth their weight in gold.

    I think having a video set up to record what these jerks are doing is good...yet, she doesn't seem to mind so why bother?? She has it all figured out..now for sure they'll leave her alone...ha, ha!!

    You folks are looking at this all wrong. She can't use lethal force if they break into her car. She can if they attempt to break into the house. Bravo, madam!

    You guys critizing this woman for doing what Christ would do is terrible. Plus, are you not aware of the Castle Law well in force in El Paso County? Be smart before posting stupidity about other people. They might be smarter than you.

    Real smart, tell em to come to your house next time, you can't protect your own car, why in the world would you do this?

    You're an idiot looking for attention. Get a car alarm and be done with it.

    I'm sorry she's getting hit, that's terrible. Offering to talk to these jerks is a bad idea, unless she wants to open her door so they can rob her house, too. It would be helpful to know the general area where this crime took place. The CSPD really don't have the resources to respond, and most likely won't. A photo of the person might help, but without a license plate number, probably not. Men routinely cruise our neighbhorhood day and night looking for anything loose to steal. Our Neighborhood Watch helps us stay in touch with each other, but it won't stop these opportunists from trying. Be proactive to keep your belongings, this is not a small city anynore.

    How about a video camera and arrest these fools. We don't need These scum in our neighborhood.
