    Please put him away for a long time and please don’t let him out on probation after only 6 months. There is a reason for jails, use them.

    The suspect in this case has been involved in campground thefts all over the western states..He is suspected in over 1200 thefts in California alone. He has served prison time in 4 states.. In 1994 when the police in Oregon searched his home they found over 50,000 stolen items…He is a lifelong criminal and needs to be in prison for the rest of his life…
