Not so much stoners but thieves
AC's comments might seem harsh for your average stoner carrying a Wishbone Ash album, but these idiots were metal thieves carrying a machete - of the type that think nothing of causing costly damage and inconvenience for a few dollars worth of copper:
>Reuben Miller, the owner of nearby Aacme Transmissions, said he confronted the man near the business on Mount View Lane shortly after noon because he recognized him from surveillance footage taken Sunday.
In that footage, Miller said, the man was allegedly seen cutting cords from a washer and dryer outside the business and leaving with them.
"I said, 'You are stealing my stuff,'" Miller said. "He said, 'I don't have time for you. I'm going to the hospital,' and pulled out a machette."
Miller said he punched the man, who also had a hatchet, once or twice. The man eventually continued up Mount View Lane toward Nevada, he said.
