  1. Commandment #8 (from The Holy Bible)
    Thou shalt not steal.

    Let me translate it… if it ain’t yours don’t touch it!

    Or how about this… Let him who stole, stteal no more!

    😁Now you know.

  2. These guys got big balls.

    Given their young age, they may very well be local. If they continue to make bad choices like this, they will eventually get caught.

    Crime does not pay.
