Indeed, most every other crime here is down. But police received 366 kidnapping-for-ransom reports last year, and 359 in 2007. Police estimate twice that number go unreported.
In September, police spun off a separate detective unit to handle only these smuggling-related kidnappings and home-invasion robberies.
Kidnapping and home invasion. But "every other crime is down." I guess there's a lot less shoplifting in Phoenix than there used to be.
They’ve certainly moved on to the ones that “pay.”
