The sub was arrested at the home owners and when he truck was searched, lets just say there was enough dope found in his truck to warrant his arrest.
Now let's look at your comments:
Your right the home owner did ask the sub about finishing a deck around the pool but not the back porch. Wrong location Hotshot!

Your right HotShot: The home owner did have to go in and lay down after talking with the Sub about finishing the deck. But the sub was leaving when he was asked to look at the deck. And wrong, the Sub never crawled under the deck, he left.

You made the statement HotShot, the homeowner should have put away all of their stuff. Iam not sure what you call stuff but our valuables were put away. When someone prowls through a jewelry box I suppose you could find jewelry.

HotShot; You made the statement you said the home owner must have been selling drugs to pay their bills, the medicine was there because the lady has a serious medical problem that occured while she was working to make a honest living. The husband also had 6 back surgeries and requires medication but still works everyday. He works and makes a honest living. You really ought to try be honest with yourself and look at your friends, the old saying is is your lay with snakes don't be surprised if you don't get bit or start growing fangs. You say your an educated man, look at the facts, what kind of scam could the home owner be trying to pull?

All thehome owner wanted was to get New windows, Iam sure by now they wish they had never taked with ABC Windows of Dalton. At least they would not
be listening to people like you.
As far as the Subs past, the homeowner could care less, it's here and now that matters. If he would have been honest he would have made good money and would have had a good reference from the home owner because the man did good work, he just could not keep his hands off of things that didn't belong to him.

Goodness, You said the only reason he took the ring was to give it to one of his grand kids, oops,
he forgot and sold it to a pawnshop.
Enough said, if you can't see the truth with the facts, your not as smart as you let on to be.
Next time get your facts before you stick your foot in your mouth!!!!!!!!!!

Whitney, I'm sorry I do know how it feels because it has been done to me, and I should had the foresight to remember that. I know that your mother will never again feel safe in her house again. Let alone feel safe when someone comes to her door, because I have been hold up with a gun in my house in Florida. I will keep your family in my prayers.
I was given some misinformation from people I trusted and I do apologized for that.(From some people that was involve with the investigation).
But I also know that the pawn shop is close on Saturday and that the homeowner wanted the back porch look at and don't the pool area.

So when this case goes to trial, Some stuff will come out on both sides. David is license and bonded and has been doing this for the last 20 years. And there was a background check done on him. So he was on Craigslist. When the job market is down you will put your name out there.
I will say this if he did steal he is a fool and I will never be around him again, and since he did pawn it with Id I feel that he has changed in the last few years!!

So people will do that.

once again Whitley I do hope your parents feel safe again in their house again and I mean that with all my heart.

And if you are right about the details then someone lied to me, but some of your details was wrong also. If you remember it rained that week. So the worked could not have happen then.

There are two sides to this story and I will be there to listen to both sides in that courtroom and like they say the truth will come out!

I will agree with you about one thing. When it does go to trial there will be some facts come out that his friends didn't know or just failed to look at: First of all they were asked to give a quote to finish a pool deck after the window job was finished. They seemed to be needing work and since we are both in bad health we thought it would help them and us if we let them finish it for us.Darrel was the only one of them that really even seemed interested in doing the work. We don't have a back porch, it is a deck around a above ground swimming pool. They never even crawled under the deck to look at the frame work. That job was not even going to be started until they finished the window job. The window job was suppose to take 2 days but they were here 7 days and now the contractor from Dalton is going to have to bring someone else in to finish it. You keep making reference to the pawn shop being closed on Saturday, I have no idea what days they are open or closed. The only reference to the shop being open on Saturday was when David told the original contractor that he ran into a good buy there Saturday on some hand tools. Monday the contractor told me what he said and I called and requested information about the purchase's the pawn shop made the prior week. That's how we came up with the Pawn Shops name and location. You made reference to a scam, the only scam was them coming into our house to do a job and start stealing us blind. There have been several other items we have found missing that we didn't even know about until the last few days. So you figure it out, we paid the contractor his money for the window job in full, the only people that is getting scammed is us by paying for a job that we trusted people to do. You always assume people to be honest until something like this happens. Then people that are friends with the theives try to say that the people that pays their bill are the bad people. Something about that just don't make sense. We did nothing wrong except to trust our fellow man to do his job and not steal us blind. Do you beleive that? He couldn't even do that! And were the bad guys?
Finding the ring under the deck was just one of the lies told. What about the Marijuana, was that a scam on our part to,or was that just something
we need to forget about. You made reference to a drug problem he had as a teenager, was this new find still part of that problem?
The more you talk the more you enlighten the community as to just what kind of person he actually is. Let me make a suggestion to you, The next time you need a contractor feel free to hire him, He does great work. Then if by chance your sitting where we are you can sit back and answer these false accusations from people who don't know what their talking about. You seem to know so much you know where we live if you have something to say, say it to us and not our daughter.
Enough said!

You are right about that! The truth will come out in that courtroom and I'd sure hate to be on David's side of the story. So I will see you there then. Oh and be sure to introduce yourself my family and I!
