  • Strange all three of the people who were just booked have the same eyes, this one looks like he is about 12 keep it up and he’ll look like he is 40 when he’s 20 if he lives that long

  • Face of what meth does too you, so sad 18 years old . Hopefully he can turn his life around ,and to have family stand buy him ,and with that love anybody can beat the meth demon. I so hope that what s in store for this youth .

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      Sad to think that marijuana was most likely the first drug he tried, if in fact he’s on drugs.

      The state should raise taxes on property, giving him a grant to graduate HSU with a degree in Advanced Basket Weaving.

      • betcha his first drugs were coffee and alcohol.

        Though around here…

        • You mean caffeine? Probably drank soda before coffee, probably nicotine too.

          • yup, those are the true gateway drugs. let’s not leave out some other common gateway’s:
            sugar, food, love, anger, being abused, sex, shopping, shoplifting, and and and…

            well, IF this kid does drugs he’s @ least wise enough to not have any contraband on him while committing this crime.

            i’ve not seen too many tweekers with passive looking eyes like i see on this guy.
            maybe he was stealing a vehicle to finally have a warm place to sleep, he looks tired as hell, like most of his life he’s felt tired as hell.

            if there is anything i think is wrong looking about this guy it’s his hair style. yikes. ouch. severe. what is this look screaming to me?

            i’m not sure but it makes me want to scream back.

            • @ Judi…I suspect the “tired as hell in the eyes” you speak of is actually what I call Xanned out.

          • Sugar reins supreme.. industry so smart no one thinks to mention it,
            No Drug claims more lives
            No Drug comes close in public health costs
