    All copper thieves should serve 5 years in a labor camp, and forfeit one finger

    You report three males taken into custody; however, 2 male & 1 female taken into custody. Love that you report REAL local news, but no good if you drop the ball.
    Check her history…nice story laying in the wings.

    no actually there was 3 males and 1 female so everybody needs to get it right. i just really want to know how many times you can get caught and get away with it.
