Your too late here guys have already bought what they want cut the cards up and skipped town.

"Within hours the stolen cards were used" yet it took over a week to get a picture out. Looks like crooks will always be three steps ahead of Leo.

Here we go to usher in 2017 - Law enforcement unable to suck it up & ask for help AGAIN, so we are asked a week later. Seriously!

Come on cops, suck in your pride, admit you have difficulty in finding criminals and ask for help within minutes if you even hope to apprehend the thugs!

Those pics aren't from La Cumbre mall as they are with a woman with a Target shopping cart and bags. What's the deal?

SMPD says it's got a right to misinform the public whenever it sees fit, and I believe most of the "crime" reported by the police these days is fiction.

Maybe I'm the only one who noticed that around the time Wendy McCaw emasculated the News Press, lots of weird, unexplained incidents began to occur - lived here 50 years & 2008 is the first I ever heard of folks strolling off the cliff in IV. Then they started walking on the railroad tracks - sometimes the train gets 2 in 1 week.

The police started shooting people like it's rabbit season in Australia. A gang in Santa Maria didn't just torture a man to death, they made it some sort of generational family tag-team sport - a father, son, and grandson, as well as friends and neighbors all took turns over 3 days. Yeah, sure they did.

Although deaths are supposed to be reported to the Social Security data base, there's a long list of people who died in 2011 - 2012, but still are not listed in SSDI - think something is amiss?

Story says cards were stolen at La Cumbre and used in Ventura County- obviously at Target. Target is notoriously susceptible to fraud with their 'no questions asked' approach to credit card authentication. Can't imagine how they remain profitable in this day and age, or why credit card companies don't drop them.

Wow, my cards were stolen over the summer and almost $5k charged but the police didn't put the suspect's picture in blast like this case.

So -- did Wendy McCaw cause these events? What are you saying? got any sources or evidence?
