Mr. Roberts was found stealing property from storage facilities and selling the items. Illinois police are asking people if they bought any of the stolen items.

Mr. Watson is facing charges of malicious wounding after attacking his roommate when he woke up to find genitals drawn on his face. The roommate ended up having to be hospitalized.

Mr. Sanchez was partying at a club, doing his thang, dressed as a clown (this club is located in a shopping mall, let it be known). Someone decided to ruin his fun by calling the cops saying that he was a "suspicious person." Turns out Cesar was on warrant for "battery with visible harm" so he was taken to jail.
