What a mouthful

Believe it or not, in a local residence, a boyfriend kept his girlfriend’s dentures hostage. Earlier that day the woman went to visit her boyfriend at his house. When she left his house, she forgot to take her dentures. She realized she left out her upper dentures while she was out with her brother. She said that she was not out to impress any men, so she was OK without them for the evening and would try to pick up her dentures later that night. The boyfriend was upset that she went out and refused to give the dentures back to his girlfriend. Could he have thrown the dentures away or stomped on them in the driveway? She certainly thinks so…

If the shoe fits

In a local home, three pairs of designer sneakers and some articles of clothing were stolen from a man who works at a shoe store. The man claims a maintenance man stole his new kicks, but there was no sign of forced entry. He stated that he knows the size of someone’s feet just by looking at them. Using his special “gift,” he told the officer that the maintenance man in question has the same shoe size as him. The man’s mother told the officer that the maintenance man has been acting shady recently, and she only knows for sure that her son’s new pairs of shoes and a few articles of clothing are missing, as well. I guess, to start, police will have to see if the shoe fits the maintenance man.

The white elephant out of the room

At a local restaurant a woman handed her phone to her son to purchase their dinner, since she kept her credit card and other identification cards in her phone case. The son placed the phone on the corner of the table nearby while ordering. After leaving the establishment, the woman realized that her phone was still inside. The woman and her son went back into the restaurant, and the phone was nowhere to be found. Although she did not have the serial number for the phone, she remembered that the phone had a flip-style case with a white elephant on it. Inside the phone case was the woman’s credit card and driver’s license.

Are you in good hands?

One afternoon a man was on his way to the gym when he noticed a red brick had been thrown through the back window of his car. The window was shattered and the culprit, the brick, was still resting in the back seat. Although there is no suspect information at this time, we do know one thing: the car owner specified his insurance company, Allstate.

‘Ring Around the Rosie’

One lazy afternoon, a woman noticed the neighborhood kids playing ding-dong ditch at her house, causing a ruckus. Later that evening, night patrol officers in the area observed her car parked in the driveway. Curious, the woman went outside to take a look at her car, which was now covered in spray paint. The paint covered the doors of the car and the windshield. The officers noticed the spray can next to the car left by the vandals, empty and punctured. The woman told the officers about the local children who were causing a disturbance earlier that day. The officers then spoke to the children, who stated that they, in fact, did not vandalize the property or play ding-dong ditch on their neighbors, but spent the day playing monkey in the middle.
