The Meadowbrook Manor perpetrator(s) who caused over $15,000 of damage to tax paying homeowners still roam the town. Is that because it wasn't a commerical establishment that suffered thousands of dollars in losses?

Too bad they didn't let the dog tear this piece of garbage to ribbons...

just to let you know. He was released on monday on 1,000 bail. No, it was probably not because meadowbrook isn't a commercial establishment, it was probably because he paid his bail and meadowbrook may not have pressed charges.
