This December I was studying for my final exams at a friends (Dan’s) house, around midnight. I decided it was time for a break and walked outside. I opened my truck, and noticed that the wires that hooked up my amplifier were cut, and my amp was gone. All my cd’s were stolen as well. We hopped in our trucks and tried to find people in the area. Dan found a police car, and told him what happened. Within 20 minutes, the cops picked up the guys (there was an eyewitness who identified them. he is Dan’s neighbor and didn’t stop them because he figured it was thier vechicle, because he didn’t know me). The cops found a winning lottery ticket for $5, and a toolkit they used to cut wires with in the guys’ jackets. It had just snowed, and their footprints were found in the yard.
So the evidence is: footprints, they had MY lottery ticket, they had thief tools, and an EYEWITNESS.
And get this… the judge lets this cocksucker off, scott free!! Says that this isn’t enough evidence, footprinting isn’t an exact science, we can’t prove it was my lottery ticket (even though it won with the same numbers as mine (it was a scratcher))
