Probably the same David Shippen who was arrested at the Opportunity Center for assault with a deadly weapon.

Good job, both Mr Rapps!

I'm glad you first spotted this thief and then chased him down. It will help the safety of all of us to have someone like this arrested and properly dealt with. Hurrah!
