COPS NOTEBOOK: A holiday tale of woe


Niagara Gazette — The friend, however, failed to provide the seller with the location where he was holding the thief down. The seller tried to call his friend to learn where he was, but alas, the friend did not answer the calls.

I guess he was too busy holding down a fleeing thief and texting at the same time, to actually answer a call. 

So please learn from this man’s misfortune and avoid midnight, street corner sales. Also, don’t buy computers on street corners or out of the trunks of cars at this time of year.

You’ll likely find, after you’ve parted with your cash, that the weight you feel in that computer box is nothing more than rags or newspapers. 

Shop smart and have a very happy holiday.
