  • Was it just a “lower-class” looking car in an upscale neighborhood or what exactly led them to suspect these two in the first place?

    • Never in the article said it was an “upscale” neighborhood. And they called it a suspicious vehicle.. not a lower class car.  They were probably acting suspicious, maybe looking for another house to rob? Who knows, apparently the cop had a good enough of a reason to stop them.

        Maybe a phone call from a resident in the neighborhood classified it as suspicious and the police followed up and pulled it over. The residents know best of what is out of place.

        •  Exactly my guess.

      I notice that too maybe they will copy them laer and update the facebook photo.

    • Wrong, she just knows she’ll get a much lighter sentence than the other two.

  • Transient ?

  • Apparently on Colombes’ facebook page, on the 25th she posted a status asking if anybody wanted to buy a 500 Gigabyte portable hard drive. Sounds like they’re trying to move their stolen merchandise.

    Good police work,  stopping a suspicious vehicle opened solved the case. Couple days a go kid on a bike gets stopped at 1:30 in the morning in Holden and oh poor kid from the bleeding hearts. .  Both cases of good police work.

        God i hope you never get in trouble, you will want a day in jail

        was draconian about that? they stole $15,000 worth of stuff? this isnt petty larceny cd’s and bubble gum from walmart… they took a lot of valuable stuff someone worked hard for. Dunno what kinda car you drive but lets say its something nice… 2007 something or other that you just got paid off and was worth about 14,000. What if someone stole it and crashed it the day after you switched your insurance to just liability since you just finished paying off the loan, then they got drunk and totaled it. Now eventually you can sue them for it but, they stole your car because they were broke so you will never see a dime of that. What if they are not even remorseful? You would just want a slap on the wrist 2 weeks in jail?

        Even if it is sound logic that after 2 weeks they will just be released to steal and ruin someone else’s earned possessions?

        I only partially prescribe to deterrent theory when in comes to lengthened prison sentences (severity of punishment) however, I do believe in recidivism prevention through harsher punishment. I.E. 3 strikes laws.  

        Draconian would be loping off their hands which still happens in places in this world. 

        •  I agree with Tom. People do work hard for their stuff, if I got ripped off of 15 grand worth of my own valuables, they’d be lucky the cops got at them first.

    At the bottom of this article, under ‘similar articles’ is the 2011 arrest of an adult drug dealer, same last name as this young lady, living and dealing in Veazie not far from where this burglarly took place.  Any connection ??  Where there are addicts feeding their habit, you will find dealers lining their pockets.  Time to go after more of these dealers who are addicting these young people.  The dealers  usually fence the stolen goods in exchange for the drugs they provide and addict these young people to.    They are making a tax free profit on the drugs and the stolen goods……he had thousands in cash on him when arrested.
