The Morning Blotter

Burglars Will Steal ANYTHING: On December 21st, a couple called police to report that their home on 19th Ave S and S Massachusetts had been broken into for the second time in two months. A police report says the thieves took a laptop—which the couple had just gotten back after the previous robbery—a cordless drill, a chrome tool set, speakers, a Mag Lite, and a JimmyJane Form 6 Purple Vibrator, which was still in its packaging. And now that burglar can build one hell of a robot.
