Posted Date: 07/19/2012 Hey what happened to the story about the burglar? That guys story is more important. Now the cops are releasing these petty arrests to try to look good. What gives? By: Clint
Posted Date: 07/19/2012 Petty arrest? Are we that de-sensitized? I would say trafficking meth, paraphenalia, and DUI are not petty I'm glad they arrested her and that we are aware of what is going on it the community! By: bbqueeb
Posted Date: 07/20/2012 OMG ! You people are killing me.... for every "petty arrest" the PD makes, its one less dirtbag and more drugs off the street. Its not a "petty arrest" its a FELONY!!!! As for the burglary, he is now the problem of the courts. They arent gonna share anything that will hinder the continuing investigation. If you think you can do a better job apply and see if you make the cut in the academy. Its harder than it looks. Glad the PD is sharing whats going on now. Would you rather revert to the old days when all was kept under wraps? GREAT JOB PD ! THERE ARE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY THAT APPRECIATE, respect and back you 100%. Keep up the good work.
