Among the activities yesterday was a stop by the church. Some of the local gentry were hanging about gabbing.
The topic of interest was the near neighbors brother, who is still in jail. As a side note, Renter said that the near neighbor had stopped him the other day and had told Renter he, near neighbor, was happy that his brother was in jail and that was the best place for him, and that as far as he was concerned, the brother could stay there.
Anyhow, the local gentry told the rumor that the brother was caught with some of the items taken in the burglary two, three weeks back. One of the items taken, the GPS locator receiver, was valued at forty grand, which moves the theft into the Grand Theft category. Not counting the other items taken with a value almost equal, taken as a whole, as the locator.
The brother has evidently acted as his ingrained wont; he dropped the dime on a cousin as an accomplice. The kid is the son of brothers uncle.
There is no rumor of the disposition of the kid, nor any word of the other items recovered as yet, just the GPS.
As previously reported here, brother dropped the dime on three meth cookers, two of whom were killed by the police and one who killed the sheriff and is now in jail for life.
I suppose the most surprising thing is the near neighbor. He is acting like he would like to be friendly, and on equal terms, with the local good guys. A far cry from his previous life style.
I suppose he is running out of no-goodniks to befriend.
