Great job in apprehending these scumbag robbers....with the problem of drug crime on the rise, we all have to be attentive of our surroundings at all times and continue to help our exhaustive law enforcement to corral and throw these lowest class of scum in jail for a long time.

It is refreshing to see the community pull together to help our Police force in their endeaver to keep our streets safe for our citizens. It's a well known fact that we have a huge population of hard drug users and dealers in this area, who will risk their own feedom to get money to feed their habit. They do not care what they have to do to get money. It will only get worse, unless more citizens step up and report what they see going on. Be aware of your surroundings when you are shopping, if someone is acting suspicious, try to remember what the look like, hair, height, clothing. Carry any cash,on you,,not in your purse, and as a precaution, while in the store and on your way to your car, use the child seatbelt on you shopping cart and fasten it securely around the handle, several times and lock it,if the criminal grabs your purse, he will be getting the whole cart and this can draw attention to him/her, and maybe cause them to run off, leaving your belongings behind.

I know these people and yeah as far as i see it frank and gloria can rot in hell, but not so much for this particular crime as there have been so many at their hands. but to ignore their daughters and worrying only about their next fix. brianne fed up with parent who shoot up infront of her and steal her belongings moved out got a job her own place and a car. now frank and gloria see their next source of drug money and play loving mommy and daddy. used brianne's emotional need for parents against her sucked her in used her and made an addict out of her, she had money, at least for a little while. yeah there are scumbags involved but not all of them are worthless people. I feel sorry that 2 people who are supposed to protect that teenage girl used her turned her into an addict and a criminal. As for Frank and Gloria they could drop dead but Brianne I'm glad she is in custody, I called PD and I hope it saves her life. All she wanted was parents and she got used by two users.
