    I just checked Crimereports.com, which the Examiner and the TalkingAboutAbingdonMd blog recently reported was including Harford County crime statistics. A search of my zip code shows there’s been about eight thefts near my neighborhood in the past two weeks and a couple of burglaries a little farther away. When I checked earlier this month, I didn’t see any, so it seems something is up. Check out the site when you have a chance. Although the detail is minimal, the information is timely and it’s easy to see trends countywide. At the very least, it reminds you to lock up.

    In a related Examiner story, a Baltimore based competitor (SpotCrime.com) is alleging that Crimereports.com and its clients are restricting his company’s access to crime information.
