CRIME SCENES

Either crime has been down in the past few weeks or the local paper has had more important things to report on. We did have a few incidents this week, though most of them were run-of-the-mill things 

Like eating at a restaurant. Without paying. (Customer was arrested for theft by taking.)

And like picking up something at a convenience store. Without paying. (Police found him, chased him, caught him, and arrested him.)

Also, a man and woman were arrested for fighting and children living with them were given over to custody of DFCS. (Poor babies. What chance do they have, growing up in a household where fights and arrests are the norm?)

And finally, a man hired a taxi to take him out of town to pick up a television. He then brought it home but tried to pay the taxi driver with narcotics instead of cash. When the driver refused--he wanted his money!--the man ran off. (But the police now know where he lives so wonder how long he'll be free?)

Gotta love our local paper! And our local criminals!

  1. Stupid crooks. You have to wonder what goes through their heads.

    There was a story in the news here the other day, though I don't know where it was, about a guy stealing a grand and a half worth of bubble gum.

  2. Local papers crime watches are just the best or just sad.
    I mean what were they thinking or maybe what didn't they think ?
    I like Williams comment.

    1. I like William's comment, too! And I honestly can't get into the mind of some of these people!
