Hey hey hey. We don’t have a lot in today’s police reports, but there are some good nuggets in here.

Like the guy who had his tools stolen. Hey, sometimes you just gotta fix stuff. I’m sure the perpetrator will bring them back when he/she is finished with their project.

I’d be more concerned with the person who knocked the flag and door off someone’s mailbox. You hear all the time about mailboxes being knocked over, but in this case the mailbox itself is apparently fine. Someone took the time to remove the flag and door from the mailbox. I don’t know how easy that is to do, but it’s got to require more patience than just driving by and whacking the whole thing with a fungo bat.

Perhaps this person will return later and dismantle the rest of the mailbox, piece by piece. Sorta creepy when you think about it.

I dunno. Anyway, here are today’s reports from Lee County and Tupelo.
