A 61-year-old man with a Mabank, TX address on his driver’s license found himself at the Highland Park Police Department early Friday the 13th about a missing decal. Apparently the man had damaged the decal that allows him to operate a vehicle for hire at the DFW airport while washing his window, and authorities with the Ground Transportation office wouldn’t replace it unless he filed a lost property report.

SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: OUT ON A LIMB

The driver of a work delivery truck reported at 9:45 a.m. Sept. 22 that a tree branch (weighing no less than 700 pounds) in the 4600 block of Lorraine Avenue had fallen on the roof of his vehicle and caused $2,000 worth of damage, which he wanted reimbursed to his company. Police reports say it was unlikely that the branch had fallen on its own, as it appeared to be “twisted and snapped rather violently,” and moved to the west – the direction the vehicle had been traveling. The tree is owned by the town of Highland Park.
