    Finally,this has been over due.These people are a cancer in our town. Every one knows it was them doing the break ins,can't imagine why it took so long for an arrest. But glad it has happened.Oh,and wonder when the others involved will go down.They know who they are and so do we. Your time is coming too.

    Everybody posting here probably lives in Halifax Co. So I'm sure everyone knows how dangerous breaking into someones house is out here. What we are looking at here at some low IQ people. Get'em off the street before someone wraps them up in birdshot or worse.

    With all of those charges a ten thousand dollar bond is ridiculous. They're probably out of jail already and planning their next break-in. Their bond should have been a minimum of fifty thousand dollars, maybe more.

    I'm sorry I work hard for what I have, what I have may not be much, but I want to keep it. If someone even creeps in my yard it is a done deal. Friend, Foe, or Family Member. I'm related to one of the suspects and it was just a matter of time...No surprise...

    Way to be a role model, mom. Hope people who are doing breaking and entering realize how quick they would be shot if breaking into the wrong house. Without a bit of sympathy either. Money is not what this life is about. Just do the best you can and earn an honest living and it all comes with hard work.

    It is time this country gets tough on crime. There is nothing worst than a thief. Lock them up don't just slap their wrist.

      Don't hold your breath. Depends on their record. The DA will probably let them plea to one or two and drop the rest. That's usually how it works. Now some firearm projectiles meeting them as they come in the door works well.
