Detective McGuire said, “it is great news that this dangerous felon has been captured and no one else was hurt. We now have to sit back and hope that the judicial system will put him behind bars for a lengthy stay so that nobody else can be hurt. Habitual felons are a continuing risk as they tend to victimize over and over.”
