“This career criminal has a history of trespassing and taking things that don’t belong to him as far back as 20 years. Hardworking residents of this county should not have to worry about their property and belongings. How many more residents have to be victimized for this thug to do some prison time? I thank these investigators for sticking with these cases, following up and seeing them through.”
