Good! Hope they catch all the thieves in the area - crime is OUT OF CONTROL! Get the druggies while you are at it - they are the majority of the thieves. Tired of having stuff I work hard for stolen! HATE theives!

Poor old Dicky the law finally caught up with him! Dicky will be so poor, I lit a match and the roaches ran out singing "clap your hands, stomp your feet, praise the lord cause we got heat!"

Mr. Meade was set up when Shawn Hogsten (scoutline auto) stole a bunch of crap 3 or four years ago. All this is old news, Dick Meade had no idea this shit was stolen. He also does not do drugs, he's not a thief, and he wokds longer hours/ harder than 90% of the idiots in this town half his age. He's a good guy caught up in someone else's mess! I know for a fact!

I agree with Public Defender - it's not always what it appears and The Daily Independent always is sure to show the 'local' person in question in as negative way as is possible.
Remember innocent until found guilty and the newspaper seems to convict when someone is charged. Lots more than what has been told so far.

George Ferguson is a VERY good guy. He would give you the shirt off of his back. This is all just sickening. And yes, it is all a part of the Sean Hogsten mess. It is sad that they are in jail and Sean gets out in November!

Public Defender. I hope you are correct.But I am sorry to say Meade & Ferguson were arrested Friday by Fed.Agents and a long investigation. What about the Mark Justice ? Did he go down ? Adam Justice? Hummmm lot more to this story. Just hide and watch.

Public defender did you stop to think that if Meade was set up it wouldn't take the feds 4yrs to do it. It has to do with Meade not Hogsten

Hmmm. Interesting. You chose to take the " caught up in the hustle" defense. Dude. I would smoke you in a court room. What kind of lawyer says " crap'. What kind of lawyer throws the blame at another individual? One of the local good ol boys got caught. Hes just the first of several. Get used to it. Maybe you're next

I know both Meade and Hogsten very well. Four years ago Hogsten and friends were stealing bikes, altering them, getting them inspected/tagged and titled, then they would take one to Dick Meade (because he has money and buys cars and motorcycles) and they would sell him one every once in a while. Meade was not the only person that bought the bikes. Mr. Meade was clueless till the feds (3.5 years ago came and took several motorcycles from his storage spot. It takes the feds a long time to do anything! You don't fully understand what's going on here. Mr. Meade owns more property than King's Daughter's plus he has plenty of money. There are people in town that want it and know how to get it! This is a land grab/setup or what ever you want to call it, but whatever....

Sean is no good period. But this has to do with Midland Motors more than anything else. Some people will finally have to testify in court if these guys dont take a ples deal. I think they are crazy if they don't force some folks out of hiding and off the road.
