Wednesday, October 31 1:17 p.m. An officer met with a women on upper H Street who explained that a female prostitute had stolen $390,000 from her bank account by using “bank codes” – a technique the larcenous harlot had learned from a police officer, and could be heard talking about it from her apartment upstairs (in the one-story building), which is accessible only through a secret passage located behind the building. She showed officers a cable hanging behind the building which, when turned right, opens the secret passage. Police speculated that there might be a mental health issue involved with the report.
These Arcata Eye police logs are the funniest things I've read in a while.
I gather from a conversation with Seebs that there's more where this comes from, which means I'm not the first person to think police logs would make a great humor blog.
Ah well, more time for me to do my ACTUAL work.
