785- COPPER THIEVES

KINDA CLOSE TO HOME
I guess they should be looking in their own backyard.
THE 18-year-old son of a police officer was arrested on Tuesday after he was caught at the La Fiesta III building in San Roque with individuals who were loading copper wire into a pick up truck.. The responding officer was able to detain a suspect who was identified later as John T. Santos. John Santos Jr. is the son of Sgt. Bernard Santos.
Wiseman allowed Santos Jr. to post a $10,000 appearance bond and be released from custody through a third party custodian, Sgt. Hillary Tagabuel. Tagabuel said the defendant is a “good man.”
If this is a good man just what the hell does a guy gotta do to be considered a bad man?
Anyone having information about this crime should call the Crime Stoppers hotline at 234-7272. All calls are kept anonymous, no caller ID is used and a reward of up to $1,000 is given for any information leading to an arrest.
Now I have a suggestion for this Crime Stoppers Hotline..
Why don't you ask the thief, Santos. Ask him who the others were, ask 'um where they were gonna sell it, ask 'um if they were there before, ask 'um all the questions, he should know don't ya think???
Enough of this shit, but watch 'um walk, a slap on the wrist... Betcha....

Yeah.. if he is such a good guy like the cops think, why hasn't he ratted on his buddies to help fight crime on the island? Oh, that's acceptable behaviour, I forgot. But he's a good guy. Probably is respectful to his grandmother, kisses rings, puts his forehead on the back of his elders hands, and stuff like that.

"..a good guy"? What an idiot statement. If they were at the La Fiesta spooling copper wire.. these guys no exactly what they're doing. They can find out where they've hit, who they sell to, etc. This has been an ongoing crime here, and there's no better example to be made than that of a Police Officer's son to let the public no that this crime won't be tolerated. Tagabuel should have said, "it's an unfortunate situation, but this is a serious crime and we will work in every way to see that serious charges are brought against Mr. Santos and the three other individuals".
