I take solace in knowing that this was not a violent crime. These two fools need to be punished, but let's not lump them with the really bad guys in our town.

You take "solace" in this? Really? How would you like these two gentlemen, or any of their associates, cutting the wire out of your possessions and squatting on your property?

As I own a storage facility I'm quite interested in this. We've also had some burglars, caught them, retrieved the property, and they're in Oglethorpe jail. We also have cameras and other security monitors on site. Some people would steal the paint off of your car if they could figure a way to peel it off.

I drove by this building twice on Friday and wondered what was going on. 7 or 8 police officers had surrounded the building. It appeared that these thieves had locked themselves in and were “hiding.” Cowards as well as thieves.
