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.
