No respect for the law or officers anymore!

I wonder if the other man stole my son's truck later that morning. My son got up and found his truck missing, and we leave near Grace Lake. He probably didn't get far, because everytime I needed my son's truck, it was near empty.

Sorry, that's suppose to be "live" instead of "leave". Which explains the fast exits from spelling bees when I was younger.
