I love blotter paper. It’s very nice to use to blot things with rather than relying on tissues and such. Anyway, on to today’s Police Blotter as it relates to cactus and such.
From Ukiah, a small town far north in Northern California.
SPIT ON BY NEIGHBOR — Caller in the 300 block of South Harold Street reported at 2:19 p.m. Thursday that a neighbor spit on her while she was walking home.
No, not that one. Silly. This one:
$1 STOLEN FROM CAR — Caller in the 100 block of Freitas Street reported at 9:33 a.m. that his/her car was broken into, that $1 was stolen.
Again! No! Not that one. This one:
NEIGHBORS STOLE CACTUS — Caller in the 300 block of East Alder Street reported at 1:53 p.m. Wednesday that she heard her neighbors stealing her cactus from her yard the previous day. An officer took a report.
Somewhat mysterious. She heard her neighbors stealing her cactus and waited a day to call the police. Do you think she went directly to the neighbors first and asked for her cactus back? Do you think they refused and that’s why she went to the police? Do you think the cactus was a Mammillaria?
