Sgt. Dedric Smith said investigators received a tip Dec. 17 that a possible stolen vehicle was at the home at 1991 Corley Road in Hephzibah. Investigators found a stolen 2003 Ford truck that was being taken apart in the driveway. The suspects were not at home, but police were later called to the residence for a domestic dispute and met Brandy Jordan, 34.

Smith said Jordan told police that she and her boyfriend, David Cadle, 40, had also been stealing metal to sell. When police later returned to arrest Cadle on Jan. 2, they discovered two license plates from stolen vehicles. Smith said it appears the vehicles were stolen and then salvaged on Dec. 30.

The suspects have 14 charges consisting of operating a chop shop, theft by taking and theft by receiving stolen property.

Smith said this isn’t the first stolen vehicle discovered at the Corley Drive home. Jordan was already on probation on a previous theft by receiving charge.

Thieves, thugs and outlaws.

Thieves, thugs and outlaws. This is entrepreneurship at its best! Lock em up for at least ten years of hard labor. Oh I forgot this is the new America, they had every right in the world to steal.

You have to wonder how many of these thieves on probation keep right on stealing? How about putting them in jail and let's see if the theft rate slows down.
