  • Low lifes. That’s why we need alarms, sadly.

  • County should put some money into a few more K-9 officers. Getting so a K-9 could be beneficial in a high percentage of crimes. Could have easily caught this guy.

    • I absolutely agree if the HCSO had had their own K9 officer the lowlife jerk hiding in & around Alderpoint would have been caught LONG ago!!! He among others would have been apprehended by now!!!!

  • Personally I don’t have a good history of getting along with One Time. But I bet some of them tell the best stories.

  • How tall was the fence?

    • Not quite tall enough, if most criminals put as much effort into actually working for money (or drugs) or finding a job as they do stealing they wouldn’t need to steal shit, idiots.
