Maple Lane or Maple Street? The two are different. I can't locate the 100 block of Maple Lane, but the 100 block of Maple Street is that trailer park right on the river levee by Johnny's. Just curious if this is my neighborhood or not.

it never ceases to amaze me how dumb some people can be. "hey I just stole a credit card, the most easily traceable means to purchase things! what to do? I know! I will buy some stuff in the city I live in! it will be great!"

This reaffirms my belief that the average petty criminal in lawrence has the intelligence of my right shoe.

It must be by Johnny's, the only "Maple Street" is that one 100 block. It turns into East Maple St. on the other side of North 2nd.
Maple Lane is the N-S street that dead ends at Edgewood Park, between Haskell and Harper, but it doesn't have a 100 block.

Are there even any buildings on that tiny block, though? I thought the trailer court had different street names.

Yeah, he used the credit card at a place when the clerk knew who he really was. Why did the clerk allow the purchase t take place in the first place?

Say...wait a second, this reminds me of something that happened a few years ago. Was this...could it be...the return of Mario Kensey and or Reggie Duncan? Using a stolen CC was their MO...if this was a pizza that they had delivered to their Jayhawk Towers apartment we need no jury!

Violent and stupid. I love it when these people are caught and convicted of a felony. Despite the sentence in court, these idiots will be confined to a lifetime of low skill, minimum wage, menial jobs. Justice is a wonderful thing.

What losers, and so early in life!
