    This is my dad…. just hours before my 22nd Birthday; I heard about the theft and looked it up ; knowing my father is a homeless drug user in that area…. sure enough; this is in fact him. I called the police and let them know all I could without thinking twice. Hopefully the RIGHT thing can be done here and nobody lost out on anything too important; I apologize to those affected by my fathers actions as I am sure he reeked more havoc among the town and this is just the only video footage catching him as of lately. Hopefully this will put an end to the crime and drug abuse that this man is living; at least while he sits where we pay for his meals for awhile.
