    Good riddance. Hope the other thieving scumbag doesn’t make it either.

    I think Ray is right. This house had the same thing happen to it last year and it was drug related. Criminals are painfully stupid, but generally won’t risk this type of thing unless there is a known cache of drugs and/or money. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Ok if you google the address last year there was another home invasion at the same house. I bet these people were drug dealers of some sort.

  6. Clay Says:

    Sure would like to know more about the residence. Drug house? Typically
    there’s more to the story on masked men & home invasions….

    At least one taxpayer relief shot administered. Hopefully it will be two.

    And democrats want to take guns away from law-abiding citizens.
