Oh My: Thief Plans For Spring, Meat Sold From Truck
In other unusual police business, a man accidentally drove through his garage.
This thief can't wait until spring.
One bandit in Shrewsbury has tired of winter, and is thinking ahead. A resident this week reported that his riding lawn mower was stolen. We don't know the status of this case, but presumably Shrewsbury residents should report to police any sightings of a person riding a lawnmower in the middle of January.
Glad to see I'm not the only one who finds this sketchy.
Sometime over the summer, I was washing my car when a man in a beat-up pickup truck drove up, hopped out and cheerfully asked if I wanted to buy some meat. Rightfully suspicious, I backed away a safe distance while he went to a freezer in his truck and pointed out (from afar) the various cuts of meat he had for sale. It turns out the guy was registered to solicit in town, but I'm not sure if the same applies to this man who was selling meat out of the back of a truck in Milford this week. Maybe I'm missing something: but are traveling, unsolicited meat salesmen a thing?
Well, that just stinks.
Most of us have done something embarassing behind the wheel (As a teenager, I accidentally ran over my dog's outdoor dog house - the dog was safe inside). Still, it couldn't have been a comfortable call when this Medfield man had to inform police that he'd driven through his garage and took out the support columns.
