    A couple of these reports don’t make sense. Why is a 17 year old boy homeless and breaking into his father’s house. He is still a minor and should not be out on the street alone. Charge the parents with child endangerment.
    Then why did the guy with 458 grams of marijuana only get issued a citation? That is over 16 pounds of weed. I’m guessing that 458 grams has got to be a TYPO??
