Standing at the back of the Hampton Inn meeting room crowded with residents from the First Colony neighborhood and Missouri City Police, the young man was still visibly shaken from the theft of his mother’s property on her street.
He’s lived in the neighborhood for 16 years without incident, he said. But someone shattered his family’s sense of safety when they broke into his mother’s car parked on the street. “You don’t feel safe and can’t sleep when that happens,” said the young man who did not want to give his name. “I leave my home now and worry about what is going on while I’m gone.”
