LMAO!! That's what I thought, too! They didn't have any pictures, so they put in two random ones.

Odd... The caption under the photos reads:

"Kareem Edward Haskins, 21 (left) and Muhammed Boatwright, 19 (right)(Courtesy of the Pocono Mountain Regional Police Department / February 13, 2009)"

But their description says:

"...was estimated to be about 5-feet-8, thin and in his 20s. He covered his face with a black knit hat. The other man was about 5-feet-10 and about 50 with a medium build and with a gray beard."

Hmmm... The photos are of a 19 and 21 year old, but the description says one was young 20's and the other was about 50 years old.

Great job as usual, MCall! No wonder people are losing their jobs... Maybe hire people who care about their jobs?

It only took them about an hour and a half to realize that they had the wrong photos with the story and remove it.

Yup, but how much do you want to bet someone will come in here, read the comments, and then start yelling that us idiots should look at the article before commenting because there aren't any photos there?
