Make them pay restitution for not only everything they stole but also any insurance co-pays and damage to the cars. They should have an amount deducted out of their paychecks for the rest of their lives whether they are inside or outside of jail.

I'm glad they found those guys. I have seen two of the three asking for cigarettes in my area and i'm pretty sure they were the ones that opened my car to look through my glove box and center console. They didn't take anything so i didn't report it. I guess we can add a +2 to the 44 vehicles. We also had issues last year around the same time in the Crofton Commons area.
