    Look at the photo of the guy painting the window then the security photo underneath it of a suspected purse snatcher. A larger version is on News Designer


    The paper ran a story about it soon after..

    That is beyond cool. Good for Tribune.

    I'm guessing the page proofers have no future in police detective work.

    "We're not crime-stoppers here..." hope I never get mugged in the vicinity of a Tribune photographer.

    “Our editors (Wednesday) night noticed the similarities in the two photos,” said Paul Emerson, Tribune managing editor. “We are not crime-stoppers here. It is just a weird coincidence. If it did solve a crime, I’m glad it happened. I have seen nothing like this in my 26 years as Tribune managing editor.”



    Sop the editors saw it and *didn't* call police?

    Someone else at the plant had to do it at 3 a.m.?


    Not wanting to be part of the story? Baloney.

    What part of "watch-dog" journalism do they not understand?

    Maybe they were too busy writing editorials about the rampant crime problem in Lewiston.
    Or they didn't want to tear up the front page.

    If they did that here in my area, the photographers and possibly the newspaper would get up to $2000.00 in reward money from Crime Stoppers.

    I think this photographer should really consider going into private investigating because he has a knack for it, really
