Valuables in the car or not, windows are being broken. Members need to start threatening to leave the gym in order for Gold's to act. No excuse for not having security cameras yet.

Sounds like GOLD"S could care less about their clients! It seems they are in agreement with the criminals! Maybe it is time for someone to sit on top of the roof and shoot with a camera anyone that is HANGING AROUND too long. They know what nights the crimes are happening. Have they checked their employee's back grounds? GOLDS is now a FREE TO BE ME ZONE for the criminals in our community? Some one just needs to set up the thief with a hot car with the window a bit open due to the heat and sit a broken laptop and some cash in plain sight and then wait for the perps to enjoy, block all exits and just call 911. Come on people, saying don't leave you stuff in the car is like saying, " SHE ASKED FOR IT BECAUSE SHE WAS WEARING A PAIR OF GYM SHORTS!!!"

"The victim said he took his keys inside the gym and had carried them to each exercise station, but was unable to find them once he was notified that his car had been entered." Uh Oh! looks like it is an inside job!!! Maybe they just break the window so it looks like a "DRIVE BY CRIME" Maybe it is a fellow gym member or even a gym employee. $40 a day with all the laptops, cell phones and cash you can carry. What a super gym membership! And all you have to do is put the keys back in place when you are done doing the dirty deed, a busy exerciser will never notice! Remember now, "YOU AKSED FOR IT" BY being at Golds or maybe by having come in a car because NOTHING WAS MISSING!!! So maybe he had HIDDEN all his stuff to be "SAFE" like everyone said to do and YET HE IS STILL broken into. Just you know the crooks just LOVE hearing it is his VICTIMS FAULT!!!

When they hire a security guard, are you members going to be willing to pay the increase in your monthly membership fees?

Don't think thoughts like that cross their mind. They were mad because the police couldn't catch the criminals. Like talking to the wall.
