Two juvenile suspects were detained and arrested on numerous charges related to the break in and an additional unrelated incident. The names of the suspects are being withheld at this time due to the fact that they are juveniles.

  1. Maximum prison time for these people with no time off for being nice in jail
    Punishment that don’t hurt don’t work .
    Keep a close eye on the judge and procuter
    And remember for the next election .
    It seems to me crime is running rampant
    And the honest hard working person don’t stand a chance with the criminals being favored .
