These people are responsible for many crimes in the area, Thefts are the way most drug abusers get their money to purchase their junk. Throw the book at these losers and send a message. Drugs are not a victimless crime.

"They have pics of all 4 of the wanted. Interesting."

Just guessing....but they probably have all been arrested before......dealing, using, hooking.......general scumbag stuff.

They are all white and don't have that socio-economic excuse thing going on so the judge needs to give them each about 40 years for being terminally STUPID.

TATS

Yes you see more and more neck and face tats on these losers. It's a criminal thing and once in place insures them that the only way they can get money is through criminal activity because there's no way they can get it legally. Who'd hire a guy with a face and neck full of tats?
