KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City business owner is livid because police refused to respond to his burglar alarm he recently installed. The reason, he says, he didn’t have a $45 permit on file.
This isn’t the first time business owner Abe Karmi has dealt with a burglary. Last month someone stole two cars and several titles out of his offices. On Monday he said he was victimized again, but this time by the police.
“Alarm went off, security company called me and say, ‘Hey, somebody break into your shop.’ Well I told them go ahead and call the police,” Karmi said. ”The alarm company called the police, two minutes later called me back said, ‘Well, they can’t come because supposed to fill out some kind of a permit that you didn’t have.”
Karmi couldn’t believe it so he picked up the phone.
