    Mr Arnold, Please dont expect our fine Police Dept. In Laurel Co to figure out your robbery we had a neighbors house broken into and all they said was"we think we know who is doing this but we haven't caught them at it yet but we wiil" they left with out taking finger print or pictures. So if any one knows who is breaking into these houses let another dept know they would probley get the job done faster. But just remeber WE LOVE OUR COUNTY :)

    There should be special consideration for criminals that target the elderly. The penalties for any crime against a victim of a specific age should be stiffer... Like... ...FINE DOUBLED IN HOME OF ELDERlY... ... I hope laurel County Sheriff's office gets a posse and dogs and spotlights and ATV's and more dogs...
