        Thanks for the info!  and don't pay any attention to the other
replies about this being to much.  I did not take it as slandering or a
vigalente hunt.  I understand were those comments are coming from but as
someone who recently had his car stolen (Oct 1) I also understand where your
anger is coming from.  If the information is to much for someone then just
take out the facts and for those of us who understand your genuine concern
and anger, I understand how you feel.  The TRF is presently running and
would be a good place for these people to blend in.  This letter is not
telling people to go out nad hunt these low lifes down just mentally note
thier descriptions and keep them in the back of your mind while your out.
These two sound like they are pretty easy to spot.  Hopefully they'll be
caught soon.
