OK, I was checking the nightly neighborhood crimes on my daily CyberWatch e-mail report, and I found an interesting one. Yesterday, there was a residential burglary in the 2000 block of Jackson. The entire list of lost items consisted of two 24x32 inch pieces of glass (valued at $50 each), an antique Planters Peanuts jar (valued at $100), and approximately $75 worth of pennies (valued at approximately $75).
So, let's put together the oh-so-complicated puzzle pieces of this crime. I love doing this. We have a guy who tosses his pennies into a cool old jar at the end of every day. Thoughtlessly, he has the jar sitting on a desk or dresser near the bedroom window. Along comes a crackhead who peeks into the window and sees a big-ass jar full of billions of pennies. He puts a brick through the window, grabs the jar and takes off down the street, fully believing that he just hit the lottery. I'm guessing he probably giggled as he ran with his ill-gotten booty, but that's not in the crime report.
What is the moral of this story??? I don't know... it's just stupid shit that goes on, but the thought of giggling crackheads makes me laugh.
