How long did it take for Tracy Police to reach the scene of the crime 3 hours? Last time someone had their house robbed, While they came home, and caught the robbers in the act. It took Tracy PD about 2 hours to actually somehow make it to the scene. I didn't know that Tracy was as big as the distance to San Fransisco Hmm...
