constant flow of traffic, "It's

Operation Identification has
been successful in the past
against thieves, according to
city Crime Prevention Officer
Al Padilla. Of 2,971 breakings
and enterings, he notes, only 63

These 16 and 17-year-old fresh

of the Ann Arbor Association for
Gifted Children, says, "The

tend to be more active than
