Overheard on the police beat

Yep, it’s the holidays.

“Patient is now making snoring noises.”

“She said the folks giving her intel on this are nefarious doper types.”

“He’s shaking his finger at us like he’s not going to go with the program.”

“She says, ‘I don’t know who he is,’ but she’s the one who brought him up from California.”

“She got onto a roll of saying her place was on fire, the FBI was outside, etcetera, etcetera.”

“It’s raining so it’s crasharoonie, crasharoonie.”

“Is the subject detained?”

“No, he just wouldn’t get off the elevator.”

“I definitely have PC (probable cause) for him. It’s most likely going to be vodka, or something clear at least.”

“Her mom was not in the path of the wine bottle. She threw it against the wall … no intent for assault … She said to pass on to her mother to lose her phone number because she has a mother no more.”

“I’m not certain what’s going on there, but I know the brother likes to play pranks from time to time.”

“There was no fire. It was the apple strudel melting down in the microwave.”
