    Awesome detective work by a St. Peter Detective who caught this maroon while he was returning back home from a robbery he had just committed in a totally different city.
    Score one for the good guys.

        nice comment, you ldiot!

        A “maroon” is what people spell for “moron” when they are not sure if the auto-censors will xxxx out the word.

        For example: Instead of calling you a —- for brains, one could write that you are a “5hit for brains” or a “$hit for brains” or a “Shlt for brains”

        It’s a way to bypass the auto-censors.
