The deputy and his partner who came out took the problem seriously, and they explained it to the dept. Even though we have a major lack of officers for a huge area, the dept. gave 4 officers over just to finding the guys, after reviewing the tape that we provided them with.
Apparently, they went all over, looking at camps, people that are known (?) to them on the streets, and at homes. Within' 24 hrs. they had one, followed shortly by 2.
The charges for them include at least 4 felonies each, such as 1st degree burglary, conspiracy to commit a crime, possession of narcotics, and grand theft. A lot will depend on their history with the law, I think, as well.
I need to stop there, for now, but I knew that you'd be happy to hear this.
Now, for the less happy news...the woman, the 'mushroom picker' that is now around, may be involved with them in some way. In fact, she walked off with some shade netting that I use for plants and the chickens in the summer. The others had stashed it to come back for it, and she found it. The problem is, that it's on our property, so not up for grabs. I have no idea what else she has taken.
And, the guy that she said was here with her originally...it's neither guy that was caught. So, there's still one out there who may come back. Darn.
Still, I'm so happy that these two are not out, and am sure that your prayers helped with that a lot! Thank you!
Oh, and we spoke with the officer at the end of the day today, and he said that he's got some personal property of ours that he will bring over. Today?
