Where are all the people upset over someone's name & address being given when he has not yet been charged? Remember a few days ago, folks (or a few vocals) were fuming over the Henn. Co. Sheriff's Deputy's address being given before he was charged.....When you're arrested, it's public info. Period.'Hope this loser gets what's coming to him.

Excellent work, SPPD--2 criminals with 1 bust. I think that's awesome, especially considering these freaks are drug addicts and at least 1 has a sex crime on his sheet.

Future Judge: Please add drug rehab to their penance. They need some tough love. And I'd also like to see them do community service "restitution" to the library circuit--perhaps planting, weeding or picking up trash.

Brotha's innocent! He just collects and repairs broken surveillance cameras. How the F does he afford a house when I work non stop and can't afford anything else than my crappy apartment?

Of course it wan't him. He was just climbing on the pole and reaching for the camera to wipe a bug off the lens.

well his momma died and left him the house and he hasn't payed taxes for years. But he and his druggie friends get to live there for 7 years until the tax evasion statute of limitations kicks in. Lets not forget about the stolen trailer found in the alley too. Nice group of fine citizens.

He says the police are always harassing him. Yeah, I'm sure the police are so bored that they have to resort to harassing a career criminal.

Not to mention, he was seen on the video, he was suspected of stealing video cameras, and he had 10 video cameras in his house.

Weird. The planets must have all been in alignment or something.

They are harassing him, everytime he commits a crime they start "harassing" him. A brotha has to get paid!

Where can I view the footage of this goof stealing the camera that is recording him while he's stealing it.
Maybe this clown thief can win money on "Ameicas Funniest Video", then he could afford to hire Earl Grey and get off.

Went to school with this looser (or, rather he was supposed to be in school). Started a home on fire back then. Maybe the police can "harrass him" into a nice concrete room with a strong lock. I wonder how the public gets restitution for the crap these losers take from public and private citizens. LOCK HIM UP NOW so we can enjoy our community.
