Here's three good reasons I'm a member of the NRA:
SAN ANTONIO — Officers from several jurisdictions arrested seven people Wednesday accused of involvement in an organized property crimes ring to support their alleged methamphetamine habits.
Police said they have recovered $500,000 worth of stolen property, including electronics, guns, drugs, a boat and mail that was used to open false accounts. Most of it was seized from a trailer park in the 16200 block of U.S. 281 North.
“They were waking up in the morning, and to support their drug habit they were burglarizing and stealing as much as they could, as often as they could,” said San Antonio police Chief William McManus. “We expect that this will put a big dent in the property crime numbers here in San Antonio and in the surrounding counties.”
