Beef Jerky Bandit
In spite, or perhaps because of, the war, the economy and the environment, the editors of our paper, the Observer-Dispatch, have placed the story of the Beef Jerky Bandit, Ronald Smith, on the front page. Smith is a Herkimer man who apparently traveled to Rome (as in New York) to steal boxes of beef jerky from a Fastrac Market. The story continues on page 2 with further reports of beef jerky crimes in Yorkville. Officer Collea of Yorkville is quoted as saying he didn't know why Smith was taking so much beef jerky.
