Trading Up

A suspect decided to “just do it” and stole a pair of Nike tennis shoes from a store in the 17700 block of 140th Avenue NE, leaving behind his own pair of shoes.

Several blocks away in the 19200 block of 144th Avenue NE, a victim parked his car in the morning out of sight from his business.

When he returned a couple of hours later, his car was gone with a bicycle left behind.

Could this be the same thief with a warped sense of an even trade?

Judging from the pair of shoes left behind, something stinks here.

Loss of Suction

In one of the rarest scenes ever witnessed by womankind, a man was seen making actual physical contact with a vacuum cleaner.

This was apparently an act of mercenary tidiness, as the suspect was then seen running through a fire door at the store in the 13900 block of NE 178th place with said appliance in tow, making a clean getaway.

You Want Beer With That?

A store in the 17600 block of Garden Way NE was the target of choice for two female shoplifters in two separate incidents.

One thief stuck to groceries, while the other decided to add alcoholic libations to the list of ill-gotten goods.

Both were cited for theft and released.

Keep Your Friends Close,

and Your iPad Closer

A shopper in the 17700 block of 130th Avenue NE took her eyes off her shopping cart momentarily only to discover that her iPad had been liberated and spirited away from its unsecure perch.

Mom always used to say, “Breast your cards!” when we played gin rummy.

Sounds like that’s the only safe place for your iPad these days.
