  • Hmm, they look like meth addicts looking for fast money to get more meth, and they are regulars in court and jail as well from what I read in the paper regularly. Gee, imagine that.

    This has been going around in Eureka. Usually a couple idiots will knock on doors looking for a friend that isn’t answering their door (a friend doesn’t actually exist). Two guys tried this at my house a couple weeks ago looking to come in and use my home phone to call a “friend” who wasn’t answering their door. I informed them that was never going to happen as I don’t let people I don’t know use my phone, especially if it’s my neighbor 2 houses down that I knew was home. Nobody is getting my number unless I personally OK it. I’m not going to be facilitating a robbery or drug deal. Nor am I going to let some unknown chump get a peek into my door or garage and start putting mental dollar signs on everything.

    Sadly this is going on all over town, not just certain places.


  • What kind of a flash do they have on that mugshot camera? People do NOT look like this walking down the street. How does it help to make suspects look way scarier than they do normally?
