A local man is giving a criminal a second chance.

Jarad Romero's mailbox was hit by a vehicle, and the whole incident was captured on a security camera.

Jarad says that the video shows the incident and includes a clear view of the license plate of the vehicle. He is willing to allow the offending motorist a chance to replace the mailbox instead of going to authorities.

Kudos to Jarad for 1) helping to keep our police investigators on more pressing matters and 2) giving someone a second chance!

If I were the motorist, I think that I would be knocking on a door with an apology and have a trip planned to Stine to buy a replacement (& having it installed!).
