A records check revealed that Mr. Pinkerton was on #AB109 probation, Mr. Potter was recently discharged from #parole and Ms Ferdik had a felony warrant. #trifecta The records check also revealed that their two motorcycles were reported stolen. #youdontsay The stolen property was returned and the trio went to #thebyrdhouse.
