Gloria Brock, owner of Gabriela's Accents, Victoria

A: "It's very frightening for me, especially. I'm having to remind myself to lock my car doors when I go out."

Betty Bauch, retired teacher, Victoria

A: "Crime has always been here, but the media has been very hush-hush about it in this little country town."

Stacey Whalon, nurse, Victoria
