  • That guy with the “LA” tattoo under his eye will be difficult to locate.

    • I already got a tip on someone who might fit that description. I passed it on. I couldn’t believe that one with embark on a robbery career with a facial tattoo! But remember the tattoo on the guy in the Garrett Benson home invasion murder? That was huge, unusual, and on his neck. I’m glad this guy didn’t kill the young couple just because they saw his face.

      • These early a.m. home invasions seem to be the murderous thieves choice of attack time. All should be warned that a good dog, a good gate, and a good gun and good neighbors are the key to safety. People ar ebeing targeted and watched by these thieving criminals. These thieves would never get out of Elk Ridge.

  • If anybody tries to rob me, they better not be wearing one of those raccoon masks. My dog sleeps very lightly and loves to bite raccoons. I haven’t had to shoot one in the house yet… Plus, the only thing that I have of any real value is the dog, and I don’t think that a thief would be very happy with her if he took her.

  • where abouts is elk ridge?

    it absolutely amazes me at the networking in your country between neighbors…awesome! 🙂

  • Raised in Weott

    In the 70s They would be looking for a gun shot person at a Hospital.
