    So where are the police artist sketches of the three suspects identified by Torres?

    If Torres can keep his story straight about the physical description of the three suspects who initiated the Children's Theater burglary, then they are prime candidates for the theft of the theater equipment, and the police should be distributing sketches of them.

    Surely, with all the people connected with the theater, somebody would be able to identify the three people Torres claims he met at the park, if only the police had asked Torres what they looked like and Torres remembers what description he gave the police the last time they asked him.

    Deep Throat, Torres is a convicted criminal why would you believe anything is says? This guy could be making up any kind of story he wants. The description of his so call accomplices sounds like a complete fabrication. For all we know they might have been regularly looking guys with no dyed hair.
