It took St. Louis police a half-hour to respond to a home alarm Sunday in south city. By the time police arrived to the scene, the burglar had made off with a gun safe, flat-screen TV and other items.

Police could have arrived much sooner, but the homeowner didn't have a permit for her burglar alarm. So when the alarm company called the police to inform them of the suspected break-in, the police waited until the homeowner called to confirm the burglary. And even that didn't send the police on their way.
