Firstly, an update on the neighbors and the visit from the SWAT team:
I went to the police arrest info website and was able to discern that two arrests were made. One was a 19-year-old male arrested on a warrant for DUI and DWAI. The second was a 44-year-old male arrested for drug possession.
I'm assuming the two are father and son since they have the same first and last names, different middle names. While unsettling to have this happen down the street, neither charge struck me as being particularly bring-in-multiple-vehicles-and-gear-along-with-a-SWAT-team worthy. I figured either an overly aggressive response or there's more to the story.
And... HOLD THE PHONE!
I returned to the police info site this morning to get facts straight for the blog (yer welcome) and found a third arrest of a 43-year-old woman, with the same last name, about 20 minutes after dad and son.
Different address, but by stalking everyone on faceb@@k for about 5 mins, I'm pretty sure they're all related. I'm guessing this is ex-wife of Mr. Drug Possession.
Omigosh the list of charges: multiple drug possessions... RACKETEERING... MONEY LAUNDERING!
Also, from my online stalking, I believe the woman I met while out walking Merlin is a daughter/ sister in the family. She's younger than I'd initially thought, mainly because she seemed more mature than mid-20s to me.
So much for Thanksgiving plans?
Do you see news stories and then spy the people involved on social media?
