NBC News has reported that police sources are confident that the two men arrested this morning in Frederick County, Md., are the people sought in the sniper-related killings.
More Details at http://www.nbc4.com

Washington radio station WTOP reported that a rifle, a scope and a tripod had been recovered from their vehicle.

Sniper investigators were looking into a possible connection to a fatal shooting at a liquor store in Montgomery, Alabama. Montgomery Police Chief John Wilson said Thursday that there were "some very good similarities" between Malvo and a composite sketch of the attacker in the September 21 shooting.

There's so many conflicting stories being reported I just don't know what to make of them. In the above report it is reported by Chief Moose that the arrests are not related to the sniper attacks. But everywhere else they are reported to be involved.

One report on local news said the pair were father and step-son and in a contest of who could kill the most! But that sounds suspicious to me since the pair has been in custody the whole time and unavailable.

But I hope this is the final episode of this horrific ordeal.

Hopefully this is OVER!!

We actually made the news last night when some kids found a sniper note here (Charles Town, WV). Of course it was a hoax, but it's the new "Bomb Threat!! Caused all the schools to be shut down, and us parents to go nuts.

Cruiseaholic will be surprised when he gets home tonight.....since the arests were made 10 mins. from his house!! It's only 25 from mine. I knew exactly where that rest stop was when I saw it on the news this AM. Now I just wish I knew where they were heading this far north from the other shooting scenes.

Take Care, All!
