    FOLLOW-UP TO THE EARLIER STORY!!!

    The suspect is described as green, possibly an extraterrestrial. The weapon is also described as a possible ray-gun. The public is advised not to confront the green colored alien (ah, I mean extraterrestrial), it may be headed for mexico (ah, I mean mars), flying a silver colored low rider(ah, I mean saucer)! Can the media please provide a detailed description of the suspect!!!

    Did this when I was 17 without a Gun Buddy. It went right the first couple of times when I was 15-16 I'd go to Nordstroms and steal $300 pairs of Jeans. The day I got Caught when I was 17 I was stealing some wack ass 7 jeans that weren't even cool and they were just a hundred bucks a pair. Why I fucked up? I would go to the same Nordsroms at Fashion Valley and repeatedly steal from them. they say I only owed them 1000 bucks so I payed payments and kept all the other Jeans I stole so it broke even.
