    It's about time! I wonder what took so long to catch them? Those break-ins happened way back in the summer! I agree that these punks should have their names plastered all over the county! I don't care how old they are!

    One of them lives in Masterson Station neighborhood. You can go see thier mugshots and prior criminal history on the jail website. They arrested him at home. The other adult male just got out of jail January 2nd.

    Ah yes, his name was not released because he is a juvenile. How many times have we heard that? Let's coddle and try to rehabilitate these young punks, but don't let anyone know that it might be your neighbor's kid who you might give a key to in order to watch your dog while you go on vacation. It's about time we start naming any juvenile involved in a crime. Some people would say that if we name them and they are found innocent, we would have already sullied their name. We do that with adults already, so what's the difference? We put them back in custody of their parents to make it better. There are two kids in my neighborhood (all under 18) who have been caught redhanded breaking in cars. Guess what? Their parents think they are being singled out and their kids are innocent. One parent even went as far as letting their son get his driver's license. Good, now at least he can drive to a different neighborhood to steal....RIGHT! Give me a them all already!
