  • I love it when a plan comes together!

    Sunday morning, DURING CHURCH, someone entered the Choir Room and stole 4 cellphones. ONE of those phones belonged to my daughter.

    That afternoon, I called her cellphone several times. Sometimes I'd get her voice mail...sometimes SOMEONE would answer and 'just listen'....

    After ATTEMPTING to use Cingular's 1-800 number to report the phone 'stolen'....only to have the automated response DISconnect me....I had a moment of what turned out to be sheer BRILLIANCE.

    I called her cellphone again and sure enough....SOMEone answered. I then ID'd myself as a police officer with my department and stated the cellphone had been reported 'stolen'. I THEN informed the suspect that the church's surveilence cameras had recorded the theft from the Choir Room. I figured 'What did I have to lose?'

    This AM, I got a phone call at school informing me that 2 female juveniles had turned themselves in late last night....along with the stolen cellphones...less than 1 hour after my little 'stunt'.

    One of the juveniles was already on State's probation...the other was 'in the wrong place at the wrong time'. What's more, these two are now THE prime suspects in several other church-related thefts occuring over the past 2 weeks.

        Good job, Shooter! Your daughter her cellphone back and dad solved several cases.

          I always enjoy bringing out the (blank) surveillance tape and watching the looks on their faces. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but it's always worth a try!

            I wish I COULD take credit for 'solving' several cases. All I 'did'(???) was give the detectives a new direction in which to look.

            But I do feel good!

              If crooks weren't so stupid we would never catch them. It never ceases to amaze me!
