    There's not much information in the story, and the information that is there is probably misleading.

    The story says the guy "may be linked to over 100 burglaries." He wasn't charged with that many, or he wouldnt' have been released on a signature bond. He probably was charged with only a small number of felonies. He probably has no significant criminal history. He probably has some significant community ties (job, family, house, etc.).

    There just isn't enough information in the story for it to be a story. They should get more facts before they post it.
