Here's some real genius involved. Risk your freedom (and even your life) for a Chevy Corsica. What a couple of jackasses. Unfortunately, it was probably neighbors or friends of neighbors.

If I'm going to "go for it" with a home invasion, I'm doing it on Foxfire Drive, not North Michigan. "Give me all your jewels, Mr. Rich-Guy-Slumming-on-North-Michigan!"

"The two suspects are described as a white male and a black male."

One more sign that diversity in the Lawrence area is flourishing.

Just saw the Corsica. Out of gas on Wakarusa. Gave them a few gallons to get back home. Didn't quite make it to Foxfire.
