     What’s next for this genius?  Food bank, nursing homes or possibly homeless shelter?

    Guy looks similar to the recent burglar at Alair.

    This makes me so angry!  The Senior Center is such a gift to our community, providing such critical services.  Here’s hoping they catch this guy and lock him up!

    As a fellow senior that struggles daily with how we are treated, I must remind some of you we all grow old just as we must all die. You will all get to the point of becoming a senior and let us hope that things change for the better the treatment of older folks that have worked and loved their whole lives from being victims and easy targets to respected members of our beloved community. My house maybe old but my foundation is strong, things like this must not, should not be tolerated.

    Kudos to the clear images!  ‘Love the community.  Ahem, without the burglaries and stresses that must accompany such heinous acts.

    I wish we could get some different angles or photos of him turned sideways.  I shop there all the time and donate.

    Everyone keeps saying that is a guy.  I’m not so sure that it is a guy, hence the covering of the mouth area. Anyone can dress like a “guy” Just trying to open up more  possibilities of a capture.

    Southside Pizza in the Beer Star building was broken into on Sunday morning. Based on our security footage, it looks like it could be the same guy. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
