Some are hard to root out,

but identity theft is a crime and has become another dimension law enforcement has to deal with. Good work Sheriff! Hopefully, the court and the ensuing justice can teach Willie something about his misdeed. Three squares of bread and water and the rock pile could possibly reorient him in the right direction.
