I was pleasantly surprised to read in the Democrat-Gazette this morning of the arrest of Tavaris K. Candy and Michael Wayne Daniel Jr. on charges of two counts of breaking and entering and four counts of possession of an instrument of crime. The two were arrested near River Mountain Park on Thursday after Daniel was pulled over for not wearing his seat belt. The officer recognized Candy as being wanted in car break-ins near the Big Dam Bridge, which had been caught on video surveillance. The officer found three screwdrivers in the car and brass knuckles in Candy's possession. A purse and other items taken in the break-ins were recovered from Daniel's 1996 Ford Explorer.
Lessons for Candy and Daniel to be learned from this episode:
Don't be a thieving dirtbag.
Always wear your seat belt. It's the law.
