[Damn starter's gun!]

[The ant trapper strikes again!]

11:54 a.m. - A woman called from the 200 block of Boulder Street to report several art pieces were missing from an unoccupied residence. The last time the woman saw the art pieces was in 2000. Police would take a report.

[So, somewhere in the last eight years or so...]

7:14 a.m. - A caller from a radio station on the 1000 block of East Main Street reported receiving threats from a man who was upset with the station's reporting. The man seemed to become more irate each time he called.

[I wonder what reporting set him off? The weather? The sports? Traffic?]

10:30 a.m. - A caller from a school on South Auburn Street reported the theft of andy.

[I can only imagine that andy's parents are distraught.]

[Ask and you shall receive?]

[It is times like this that the waiting period for a gun seems like a good idea.]

[Nice work there, Mannix.]

4:35 p.m. - A man called from the 19000 block of Legacy Lane to report Internet fraud. He placed an order online and he did not receive the merchandise. A deputy advised the man to get an attorney.
