The suspects were booked at Santa Rita Jail for charges related to possession of illegal narcotics,

Jeb,
Who were these three?
Are they local, young, old, repeat offenders?
How did they get caught?

But I am glad they were caught.
Sounds like they were a crime spree.

Hopefully they will be jailed, until they are sent to prison. Credit card thieves are so rampant, we must demand prison time, for the lives they ruin...at least until we start implanting tracers the first time so we'll know where they are at all times. Identity thieves don't deserve the right to walk among us. They have destroyed too many lives, and are just too insidious.
