Nice work, to get those punks without shooting and/or someone getting killed.
Makes me glad I don't have their job! (And that we have someone to do it.)

Just imagine...if young Danny Jr - aka DJ, Danny Coleman, had been inside still after this, he wouldn't have killed those two women on their way to work. Web Link
"Investigators learned that Coleman, who was wanted on two outstanding state and federal arrest warrants, was also inside the home. Both suspects eventually surrendered without incident and were taken into custody, Sanchez said.

After the arrests were made, a search of the home revealed three handguns, according to police. Webster and Coleman were both taken to San Mateo County Jail for booking."

Bob - I just commented on this old thread, which is why it showed up again. He was arrested for a double murder via a hit and run, which is pretty uncommon to do. Web Link
