    Its about time they got him and $60.000 secure bond might keep him of the streets from stealing from everybody like he has done for years. Hopefully they will send him off for a long time and his buddy he works with will get caught too.

      I know the police and deputies seem to do their jobs, but it seems like these people always go right back on the streets… I know of three or four that have been doing this since childhood… even breaking into occupied homes and they almost always be right back at it in 6 weeks or less.

        CRS this boy is well known and has a criminal record long as your arm with several felony charges .Maybe this time he want get out on a $60.000 secured bond because if he does he will go right back stealing .That’s all he knows. Sad but they have got to stop him and all the others ,but its like job security for the courts . The Law enforcement can arrest these people ,but the courts have got to do their job .

          What they should do is do like they do in some foreign country’s if you are caught stealing they cut your hands off ,but for him a few years in prison will do him good and these others running wild down here will get there’s too.
