Casey -- There is no such address as 1305 W. Evelyn Ave (as far as I can tell). There is an Eye-Fi business at 305 W. Evelyn Ave, though.

Good catch, thank you. I've fixed it in the story.

Who are these crooks? The other newspapers print names of those arrested. Are they juveniles?
This is public information. Please report it as such.

The ages stated in the story, 33 and 34, sort of indicate these persons are not juveniles.

Yeah, I know, but given the typo in the original story, I wasn't sure if they were 33 and 34, or 13 and 14.
Also, the only reason NOT to print their names is if they are juveniles...I can read, I'm just wondering why people can't write the FACTS.

Good point and....excellent comeback! Were the suspects names ever printed or their ages discovered (confirmed)?
