This makes me so mad I can't even see straight.
I just talked to Tom, the owner of Texas Hydroponics, who put up $300 of his own money to catch these jerks. I told him I would match his reward, so now we've got $600 bucks for whoever can make an ID leading to the arrest of these vandals.
And, look, it's not often you find council members offering money. --Robert Wilonsky
