    good job. even more need to be caught and kept in jail. too many are in and out and repeat their crimes. Hwy. 19 has a couple of trailer parks that could use cleaning up and also int the graniteville breezy hill area..not all parks, but they know who they are and the police should be aware by now also of their identity. Crack and other drugs are ruining lives and families in outstanding numbers these days.

    What exactly is an "Attempt to Possess?" Because, the way I see it, either they had it or they didn't.

    May have been a different Joseph Gooden, because another article says he lived on Golden Way.

    Did you notice Diego Davis lives at 2121 Boykin Road and there's a Joseph Gooden that lives at 2116 Boykin Road, is that the same Gooden that was shot by an officer at Capt D's Wrightsboro Road? If so, that's quite a coincidence they are such close neighbors.

    Several Williams, a Hill, a Davis, a Myers, a Wright, a Walker...very very good...odd though, the only one that looked familiar to me, Carlos Hazel, I didn't recognize his name. Trying to remember where I've seen him before, 'cause I don't live where he's from.

    Is Diego related to Alfaigo?
