Here are some extracts from the Grass Valley police blotter for 5 August 2010.
I'm no Sherlock Holmes, but I detect a pattern here:
12:29 p.m. — A caller from a business in the 100 block of Mill Street reported two 8-year-old boys had been caught shoplifting. They were warned and the merchandise was recovered.
12:49 p.m. — A man from the 100 block of Alta Street reported a vehicle had been egged.
9:45 p.m. — A caller from the 100 block of Neal Street reported two boys stole cheese and left on bikes.
10:18 p.m. — A caller from the 800 block of West Main Street reported two boys running and diving into bushes who might be up to no good.
They're just trying to make an omelette.
