Oh... we certainly know who this person is.
We had forwarded all the visuals to the RCMP. We even confronted the loser at his parent's home at the time. For reasons of convenience, we all decided not to press charges at the time, but since we made a formal police report, there is no statute of limitations. So in other words, we can still press civil charges, and it's up to the authorities to follow through with criminal charges after our application.
I agree... plant thieves and other similar perverts should be publically identified.
