A Bonner Springs woman and a Tonganoxie man were charged Wednesday with theft stemming from an alleged Tuesday evening theft of a camouflaged boat from the former location of the Gaslight Village mobile home park.

Tabitha D. Jayne, 43, and Christopher C. Jackson, 23, were arrested about 6 p.m. after police received a call about a boat being taken from the park at 1900 W. 31st Street.

Jackson and Jayne were in a vehicle towing the boat, and had fled from the scene before police arrived. However, the vehicle was stopped by police in the 2900 block of Iowa Street.

Two other men were arrested related to the case, but theft charges were not filed on either. One of the men, 48-year-old James M. Reisinger, was charged with interfering with police.

Jayne and Jackson are being held on $3,000 bonds, while Reisinger is being held on a $1,000 bond.

Theft is a level-9 severity crime, punishable by probation and up to 17 months in prison.

My position is not an argument. It's the way it is. They get culled because there is no room in the Inn for them. Do they win? Kind of. And don't hang it all on the DA, the one at the big bench in the black robe calls those shots and most of that is directed by a cook book. PS, I'm glad I'm not your daddy.

Before you get all off on a tangent...examine the economics of community corrections and the cost/benefit ratios to the public benefit. The Jails tend to be full, the prisons are busting at the seams and the courts are over burdened by ..stuff. So boys tell me, who all wants to vote up some new tax dollars to expand and support the existing corrections system? Nobody? So we will 'triage' criminals and let the non violent ones skate off easy...there is the way it ought to be..then there is the way it is.

Thanks for listing the punishment as a range from probation to 17months. Now we can see how quickly our weak DA will offer a plea bargin of probation. What a weak DA, he needs step up and put some criminals behind bars for more than a few months!
