A Norwalk dad is facing a pair of felony charges after police raided his apartment and found a meth lab Friday.

Allen E. Mobberly, 32, of 37C Bouscay Ave., was charged with permitting drug abuse and child endangering.

Using a search warrant, officers went Mobberly's residence Friday evening, intending to confirm that a meth lab was there. The raid led to a fire, which was quickly put out by Norwalk firefighters.

Norwalk police said they removed Mobberly's 3-year-old son from the burning apartment .

Tai Hale and Trystin Dupont, who live in the neighborhood, said they saw officers use a battering ram to open the door. The pair also said they saw a woman grab a boy in his underwear from the apartment when the fire was going, but flames "were not coming out yet."

*were jumping to conclusions, *were *too busy trying *to make, *your business, *peoples' (plural possessive, a big one there) *mouths (plural because it's talking about more than one persons mouth)

those were (not was) just some of the grammatical errors in YOUR statement... if i tried to correct the punctuation it'd look like i was trying to type morse code.

im glad to see that YOUR spell check works on YOUR computer but YOU'RE still having trouble in YOUR sentence structure and proper use of words...

Sweet Jesus, i hope you don't talk a poorly as your type... it's hard to take anyone seriously on the internet when you have to correct everything in YOUR head to make sense of anything...


Well Momma, I left you alone for obviously you don't understand so I will try to get you to comprehend something here since you called me out. You stated they take 60% of your gross income. Which means if you work 40 hours a week for $8 hr you pay over $900 a month for your rent. So let's say you were talking gross a week. 40hr x $8 ph = $320 gross x .60 = $192 per month you pay in rent. Ok. Now, got that? So if your rent is $680 month - $192 you pay = $488 I STILL HELP YOUR BUTT WITH. Plus all your foodstamps, plus (hopefully) child support, plus, plus, plus. So my statement to you and others- Get off your ss, get a SECOND job since you say you have one, and get off welfare. You stated you have a STNA and something else, but now you will be taking night classes that me and the majority will pay for because YOU DON"T WANT TO MOVE TO WHERE THE JOBS ARE. Use what you have. I for one am tired of paying for your rent, extended cable, iphone and all the other crap you get for free hand outs. Cut your cable to basic, get a house phone and go to the library to use the internet and get an education. I don't think you are a bad person and never said you were. I simply said that people such as yourself need to quit taking crap without giving back. I also never said you didn't have a job. I said get off your as* and get a job, whether it be a 1st, 2nd or whatever. And stop using your kid(s) as an excuse. Everyone over the age of 30 lived life making doctor appt for there families with needy kids without a cell phone longer than you been born. Just another BS excuse to warrant what you think is a necessity in life. If I was trying to make you look bad I would have then, instead of waiting until now. SO bottom line is you are content with the handouts and will make excuses for whatever comes along so you don't have to work too hard in life and get stuff the generation before you worked and saved for. So you lay down tonight and you think how honost you are by getting all this free stuff and see how you sleep. Sad part is, you don't give a crap and will sleep just fine. You have a nice life, young lady. I'm sure you will enjoy it on our dime. Enough said.


There you go jumping to conclusions once again I Told you I lived on welfare for 7 months and only 7 months remember that. I do not live on welfare yes I live in section 8 housing but when I got a better job my rent went up to full amount which is 680.00 a month. I do not receive food stamps anymore and my health insurance is through my job. Being a single mom I can not afford to move out of here because I have to pay my rent here and can't afford first month rent and security deposit somewhere else. Once again I told you not everyone down here is on section 8 housing alot of us pay full amount down here or close to it. I do not have a iPhone I have a Droid bionic through Verizon actually I do not have cable and my kids do not need electronics they need to be active little kids that play sports and play outside and enjoy themselves instead of sitting in front of that crap. I also do not receive child support I take care of all 3 of my kids financially by myself. I just felt it necessary to explain to people not everyone is living down here on your dime. I think you told me you was on welfare from 92-94 right so who's dime was you living on???? I was only on it for 7 months and you want to talk crap about me and assume stuff. Get your head out of your A** and stop living in a little bubble you need to wake up and face reality. Ohhhh and to the grammar police I know there are alot of mistakes.


And by the way you are not paying for my schooling I will be paying for it on my own thank you.


Ok Momma- I'll see if I can get this straight. You stated you have only been on welfare for 7 months then state "the only reason I'm on welfare", meaning you are NOW. You say they take 60% of gross, subtract and you pay 40% a month, but NOW you suddenly went to paying the full amount in the last 2 days. You kept using terms such as "us" and "we" when talking about the people living there. I assumed NOTHING and I concluded to things that you said. Now you are saying you are not on welfare when you stated you were, you lost everything and have this decent job. I think your full of crap with your lies. Your caught. I believe you are living on our dime and are pis*ed I called you out on it. And sorry- I did mess up the math on what you supposedly pay- but I think your not sure if it's 40%, 60% or the full ampount now- just like me. No use talking to you anymore. You made you point of how SOME welfare people buck the system. Thing is- you have to remember your lies. God- you typed them- at least go back and look at them. And by the way- I WAS on welfare for 2 years. I have given back in donations to the Salvation Army, American Red Cross and helped feed the homeless in Tampa Florida when I WAS on welfare. So, ya- I GAVE BACK. WHAT HAVE YOU DONE FOR YOURS?


I used "us" and "we" as terms for people who live in Bouscay period. I was sticking up for the people who live down here and was stating when I was on section 8 housing and welfare for them 7 months that is the amount of rent they took from me. I told you once I would be happy to meet with you. I work at the veterans home or you can meet at my home whatever you would choose and you can see how I live and that I don't live off of your dime. I will say thank you for donating to these foundations they do amazing thing for people as I have also volunteered my time to help. I am done arguing with you I have better things to do. God bless you and your family. I hope for your sake you are never in a difficult situation.


Who the hell cares about my grammar its the Norwalk reflector not a college essay and I am pretty sure it says I was talking to wasp 71 not you. Why don't you find something else to do then getting on the Norwalk reflector and correcting my grammar. You have to much time on you're hands.


it's not that i have too much time on my hands, really i'm just reading the paper and the comments like many other fine folks... i thought i would take a second or two out of my day to teach a free lesson or two. lesson 1, was to correct your poor grammar, which i couldn't help but notice that your retort was put together very well. lessons 2, was how poor grammar makes you sound more silly than angry, thus rendering your statement useless as a form of intimidation. lessons 3 is about trolling, which you're now actively taking part in as a lead example as to how easily someone is upset when someone else points ut the fact that they look like a fool.. the longer you pay credence to me, the more you get angry, and the more fun i have.

really i just can't stand people that can barely write a sentence crapping up a comment section. i don't care what the comment is, what it's about, or what article it's under, but when someone, like you, gets online and tries to type a message that's only fit for txting conversations in the 90's when they used to charge by the character and use so many words in the wrong context that one literally needs to decipher what language that you're actually trying to speak, it drives me, and im sure many others, nuts.

and as a dismount, if you didn't care about grammar in the norwalk reflector's comment section you wouldn't have changed your typing habits and cleaned you act up. you're welcome.


You act up. I think you need to proof read, and you typed a whole paragraph with only commas and no periods. You don't bother me I could care less. You actually gave me a good laugh. Have a good night.


momma, the reason there was no period was because it was all one thought train connected by conjunctions. ... if that's all you have, stop while you're ahead. the general rule of thumb is if you can say it in one breath without changing direction there is no need for a period. see what i did there? my thought ended so i added a period. if i would have used the words "so," "or" or "and" accompanied by a "," (comma) it's alright for you to be confused that there are no periods in the statement, but still more or less correct without using confusing symbols like a semicolon ( ; ). enjoy your evening, and stay sharp.

... and the truth is, if you truly, honestly and whole heartedly didn't care, you wouldn't have said anything in response to me. not caring is not saying anything in return. so in a way you care, just not as much as you'd like to admit to your self that you do. again, enjoy your night.
