  • Woe is our county. Far too many folks thieving and it our local families who pay the increased cost for services and products due to increased costs to businesses and insurance. Theft is not victimless. Hope the scoundrels are caught.

  • Check the closest fishin hole! Or meth house, sure they aren’t far.

  • Check the Trinidad Casino.

  • probably took their winnings to new heights

  • Easy to find when some meth head all of sudden has enough smokes to go around

  • Folks, spend the bucks for some decent cameras and mount one down low looking up at the front door from a hidden location.

  • Steal a fish, feed yourself for a day. Steal a fishing pole, now you can try to trade fish for dope.

  • Why did the Sheriff only give the public still shots harvested from a large reel of video footage that only show the backside of the man and a difficult side shot of the woman and then ask for “help!” from the public?

    Apparently the choice of the only two completely (or near completely) useless shots of the suspect still shots means they don’t actually want the public involved at all in identifying the suspects. I’m 90% sure I know who the woman is. And I could be 100% if the Sheriff would surrender better views that they for sure have. For instance, when the couple entered the store they have cameras pointed right at the doors.

    But now they’re telling the public “it was two teens, nothing to see here!”. Men’s clunky rain boots are an odd choice of footwear for a teen girl. Especially since it wasn’t raining and the ground was dry and the female needed to make a quick getaway.

    And the mystery thickens.. Anyone think they should post more shots of the suspects?
