    I’m so glad to hear he’s in jail. In Jan. his mother was between homes and I allowed her to stay with me at my parents home. My kindness was repaid with Cory stealing my Pop’s tool’s. When I used social media to warn buyers that the tools were stolen by him and recorded on a neighbors security camera. He and members of his family threatens me with bodily harm.
    Last week I received a letter from the state district attorney telling me he was not going to charge with a felony for the theft. I was shocked. I had to seek therapy caused from this young man. It’s a dam shame we can not depend on the system for justice. So many people enabled this young man again & again. I guess we’re just luck that nobody was killed.
