    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Escambia County. You do not want to mess with this area. They caught Ted Bundy. They’ll catch you. Eventually.

    Anne, I’ve been doing all those things since the 70s. Crime didn’t just start lately.

    My niece is an Auburn grad, but she hasn’t robbed any banks–yet.

    GOOD. Although insured by FDIC having one’s bank violated is very Personal.
    Thanks to whoever got the info and turned this guy in to LEO.
    FBI should handle the rest of his case.
    Now back to doing the tally of how many shootings we’ve had.
    Odd because “Crime is Down in Escambia County”.
    Keeping the doors locked, stuff put away from yard, vehicles secured and empty of attractive stuff, “Elizabeth” is loaded and safety on.
