We're Number One (and/or Number Two)
Norfolk leads the Hampton Roads area in number of larcenies, and auto thefts, but is only second in burglaries and arson.
Unsurprisingly, Portsmouth tends to take up the slack in the other categories, with almost double the number of burgularies. Except arson. From the low figures in Portsmouth you would think nobody there could light a match (they sell self-lighting crack there). Virginia Beach proudly leads the way in largest number of deliberately caused fires. Chesapeake has more arson than Portsmouth, for goodness sake.
Then in other good news, two local cops just got busted for DUI.
We don't drink, we don't smoke, NORFOLK, NORFOLK NORFOLK
