SKULDUGGERY OF THE WEEK: SCALES OF INJUSTICE
The thief, who stole a package around 7:14 p.m. Nov. 3 from the front porch of home in the 4100 block of University Boulevard, may get a jump start on the oh-so-famous New Year’s resolution to lose weight. The stolen package had a nearly $65 bathroom scale in it.
Stolen before 7:18 a.m.: a green leather Brontibay wallet, $100 cash, and a Wilson tennis racket with purple grip from an unlocked 2012 Lexus RX5 parked in a driveway in the 4500 block of Southern Avenue. A child’s orange Mongoose bicycle parked on the porch also was stolen. The 39-year-old woman who reported the crime later told police she received a private message on Facebook, possibly from the thief, that said, “You lost your driver's license and credit cards.”
