Three Marthasville Teens Arrested After a Failed Attempt to Steal Money to Buy Marijuana

Three Marthasville teens were under arrest after a failed attempt to steal money to buy marijuana on December 8, 2012 was discovered by police. 17-year-old Corey Reiling-Clark, 17-year-old Jacob Fuse, and 17-year-old Jasper Meyer-Coates all are facing charges in the innocent. Police allege Reiling-Clark, who works at the S&R Convince Store in Marthasville, concocted a plan to steal money from the store. Surveillance tapes show that Reiling-Clark had hidden his friend Meyer-Coates in the store before closing. After Reiling-Clark locked up for the night, Meyer-Coates emerged from the cooler and stole around $500 in cash and some check left in a specific location by Reiling-Clark. Once Meyer-Coates got the money and left the store, he was picked up by Reiling-Clark and Fuse and the three drove to Washington where they divided up the money. The three told police they then used the money to purchase marijuana and have a party. Police investigating the incident reviewed the surveillance tapes and arrested all three shortly afterwards.

What will the future hold for the Class of 2015? Time will tell.

My youngest has now graduated from high school. Back in 1980, I was the youngest of my family who graduated.
