Authorities are seeking four young people today in connection to their suspected role in suspicious activity reported early this morning by the preacher at the Legacy Church of Christ. Sometime between 12:00 midnight and 12:40 am, certain suspects transported and unloaded a full set of living room furniture onto the front lawn of the North Richland Hills home belonging to Allan Stanglin. The items, orderly arranged on the lawn in meticulous fashion, included a love seat and cushions, a swivel arm-chair and pillows, a decorative floor rug, a wicker book shelf, a coffee table, and a color television. The perpetrators also hung a chandelier from one of the trees.
The suspects are:
Payton Giacomarro, Landon Brightwell, Jenna Brightwell, and Bethany Fleming.
At least one and possibly two or three other adults, who are all much older and should know better, are also sought for questioning as persons of interest in this case.
All four of the named suspects have been involved in the planning and executing of various and sundry other crimes against Stanglin, including, but not limited to, the placing of dozens of live gold fish in the back of Stanglin’s truck, the scattering of hundreds of glow sticks in his front yard, and the overnight hurling of raw biscuit dough at the windows of his vehicle. All four of the area teens are still at-large and are to be considered armed with cameras and dangerous. They are believed to be driving a large red pickup truck and some type of white vehicle. Descriptions of the get-away cars are vague as Stanglin and his wife, Carrie-Anne, remained in a fuzzy haze of semi-consciousness for two or three minutes after being awakened by the flash bulbs at about 12:40am.
The cold-blooded nature of these criminals is legendary. In fact, two of the suspects, Fleming and J. Brightwell, are believed to have already crossed state lines into Arkansas this morning, leaving the other two members of their gang to fend for themselves against authorities. They are planning to begin a new life together there, undoubtedly a life that will include the recruiting of new subjects to join the gang in the terrorizing of innocent ministers and church staff. A Bible professor at Harding University has already agreed to extradite the pair should they be located in Searcy.
If you have any information as to the whereabouts of these suspects, please contact Mr. Stanglin. If any of the furniture looks like it may belong to you, please get it out of the front yard yourself. After 12:00 noon today, the owners will have to purchase the furniture from the Goodwill store at Rufe Snow and Hightower.
Authorities are considering charges of suspicious activity, disturbing the peace, reckless endangerment of grass and antbeds, and carousing.
25 days until the Cowboys kick off their NFL season against the Bucs. And the second-best #25 to ever play for Dallas is — you’re not going to believe this — defensive back Scott Case. I know. I know. Case played eleven of his 12 seasons in Atlanta before Dallas signed him as a backup on their 1995 Super Bowl team. He only recorded 14 total tackles in his only year with the Cowboys. But he brought decent credentials with him: 30 career interceptions, a 1988 Pro Bowl, and all kinds of honors from OU.
Give me a break. It was either Case or two colossal draft busts. There’s no way I could put Rod Hill or Derrick Lassic on this list.
