Deputies say guns and an ATV, as well as numerous household and personal items were stolen.

The suspects were arrested as deputies were investigating an unrelated theft in nearby Wells and discovered a pickup truck loaded with stolen items.

What made you think I'm a vigilante,"kramer"? I couldn't care less if they read my "rant". I was just pointing out that in rural areas we kinda CARE when something like this happens to our elderly. And if your doper kids don't wanna come up here,fine with me. We don't need trouble makers bussed in,we have enough already here to fill the quota. BTW-their "contribution amounted to probably under $100.00 of junk food and soda,and cost in the thousands in expenses-we'll be fine without their "contribution",thank you.

the commenter "speed" seems like a vigilante 2 me. nobody likes those who prey on sick or elderly folks or to feed their habit. Doubt that they'll read your "rant". Hey "speed", remember when the California skier kids had all their weed confiscated off their tour bus? bet they won't be "contributing" to the local economy-probably just blew it all on decaf in SLC, eh? or 3.2 beer?

drug charges? What a surprise! They should confess their butts off and hope for maximum sentences,because people in this area are extremely intolerant of this sort of behavior.
