Burglary and identity theft victim Rowan Miller took to solving the case with her friend after allegedly, Police did not act on information.

The friend said the sergeant implied the incident wasn't important, and she questions "What do you do if they don't take something like this seriously - if someone takes someone's identity and starts clocking up tens of thousands of dollars - where are we heading as a society?".
