    Leland Police have not released any suspect information from these break ins or the ARMED ROBBERY CAUGHT ON CAMERA AT BBT. Are you trying to catch them? Please WWAY, press them for more information.

    What a, disgustingly, ignorant, libelous and baseless accusation.

    Since they can’t work on Jon David’s house anymore for extra money it is probably just one of the members of Leland’s Finest making a quick buck. It is the holidays and all.

    It is 2012, thieves have targeted things unlocked since the beginning of time and they always will. No one deserves this, but LOCK your doors people. What did you expect, you left a target….:(
