  1. I don’t understand how you can have 2 felony convictions for prowling vehicles without being monitored. I’m tired of having these convicted criminals in our neighborhoods going through our cars and yards in the middle of the night.

  2. I wonder how a suspect with 19 warrants is even out of jail? Has he posted bail and gotten out of jail again? It would be interesting to have follow-up info from the police as to disposition of the arrestee.
