Guns fired, pair arrested

September 27, 2011

Two Arroyo Grande men were arrested Sunday after sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of gunshots being fired at Lake Lopez.

After deputies arrived at the scene, they found Michael Lynn Anthony Hardisty, 20, and James Ryan Johnson, 18, and took them into custody on a variety of charges, including drug and weapons, including possession of a handgun reported stolen in Stockton.

The pair was booked into county jail for possession of stolen property, warrants and narcotics, said sheriff’s department officials.

    “The pair was booked into county jail for possession of stolen property, warrants and narcotics, said sheriff’s department officials.”

    Re-occurring theme going on lately
    Drugs involved in most of the reported crimes as of late?
    And I thought we were being told the crime rate is dropping…

      Just think..if the Gubment could convince everybody to get chipped, local PD’s could buy a setup like the Grover police just purchased that would allow a passing patrol car to scan everybody in a crowd and get instant intel on warrants,felonies etc and arrest them. Bet you’d see folks in “no place like home” running like roaches when the light get turned on..LOL..

      I have to tell you, I have hard time following your logic. What does drugs being involved, and a re-occurring theme in crimes, have to do with the crime RATE?! Are you even trying to make a logical point, or are you just throwing things that are associated in your head out there thinking that passes for communication or meaning?

      That aside, the connection between drugs and crime is a correlation. People convicted of even minor drug violations cannot get any government money for school (not that I’m big on government funding of things, but that’s not the context here, we’re talking about their relative chances), have a hard time getting jobs, and therefore, tend to commit more crime. Very little causal relationship has ever been demonstrated between drugs and crime.

      In other words, making poor decisions into crimes perpetuates crime.
