Constabulary Notes from the U.P.

I've recently discovered the joy of reading the police briefs from the Soo Evening News. The writing style is, ah, word friendly, but it can't be denied that the writer has a voice. And if you think nothing happens in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, think again:

Odd calling card

SAULT STE. MARIE — The owner of a vehicle parked in the 900 block Lizzie Street reported that someone tore the driver side mirror from the side of a vehicle parked there on the street. Upon investigating, officers confirmed the damage and found several pieces of bologna stuck to the side of the vehicle, reportedly in a smiley-face pattern.

The bologna and smeared small fingerprints on the finish led officers to conclude that kids were the culprits.

No suspect was suggested.

Memorial Day weekend was a dream, my friends. Words and images to follow.
