Bizarre Robbery

Big Reward Offered for Bizarre Crime

This crime is well beyond the normal comprehension of the every day average mind. You may think that I'm making all of this up, but this heinous act actually happened. There was only one eyewitness to this crime, and I'll try to tell his side of the story for you all. His name Is Mr. X, and I'll just use an initial to protect his identity, in case we have to go through the court system with this case. Mr. X is at least 86 years old, so it's always possible that his eyesight isn't the best anymore, but I feel in this case it's probably accurate enough. So let me now begin to try to explain the circumstances of what just took place, by explaining what our key eye witness Mr. X saw on this dark day.

It was an average day like just any other day, and the sun was high up in the sky. Yes this crime took place in broad day light. Mr. X said he was sitting in his rocking chair on his porch, when he noticed a dark shadowy figure moving slowly through the woods. He couldn't quite make out who it was at first, but then the figure came slowly into view as it slowly approached the fence in our back yard. Mr. X said he didn't recognize who this was, and never saw them before, or since this crime took place. Mr. X said they then brazenly broke through the fence in our back yard, by digging a crude hole underneath of the fence in far back corner near the woods. He said they knew exactly what they were after, and went right to the spot where it was sitting in our back yard.

They looked all around to see if it the coast was clear, when all of a sudden they paused after they noticed that Mr. X was looking at them. However this didn't even deter them from their theft. They snatched up our little one's favorite toy, and then ran as fast as they could back to the hole in the fence, where they escaped never to be seen or heard from again. Now I realize it was just a toy, but our little one was really attached to this one particular toy, and has really been depressed ever since it disappeared. I'm not saying that it cost a lot of money, but it's really the principal of it all. If something doesn't belong to you, then you shouldn't just take it, especially without asking first.

The only description we have of this thief is from Mr. X. He figured that the thief weighed somewhere around one hundred pounds. Mr. X said that the thief was a young male with shifty brown eyes. Who had short black hair, that was well groomed, except for being covered in some dirt from crawling through the hole underneath the fence. Mr. X said that the only thing which really stood out about this thief was that he had one white ear, one brown ear, and the tip of his tail was white as well. Mr. X also noted that he'll never forget that bark.

Yes, the thief was a sneaky little dog, and our little Fluffy really misses her favorite chew toy. It really doesn't matter if a thief has two or four legs, because stealing is stealing, and that's just plain wrong! So if you see anyone matching this description carrying a purple chew toy around in their mouth, please give us a ring. There will be a big reward for any information leading to the arrest, and conviction of this thief. Thank You!

One last quick story

Crime can always happen in the broad day light just like in the pitch dark. I want to pass on a short story that I heard years ago. Everyday at about noontime a little 10 year old boy would cross the boarder from Tijuana Mexico into the United States. He pulled a little red wagon filled with sand behind him. Every time he showed up at the boarder, the highly trained boarder guards would dump out all of the sand looking for illegal contraband. They never found a single solitary thing. This went on day after day for months and months. The boarder guards never found anything, and the little boy would load the sand back into his little red wagon and go on his merry way. One day out of the blue that little boy was never seen again at the boarder, and the guards wondered what happened to him at first, but after time that little boy was all but forgotten. That was a long time ago, and today that little boy grew up to own one of the most successful little red wagon companies in the world. You see that little boy wasn't bringing the sand across the boarder, he was actually smuggling the little red wagons out of Mexico. In this particular case the obvious was over looked, even by the well trained watchful eyes of the boarder patrol.

Nice one! The last thing we expect is someone else's mutt taking a fancy to your own mutt's belongings and digging under the fence to get it! I liked the red wagon smuggler as well. You should be a crime writer with this kind of material. I'll give it five!

Here's a different perspective - from a quality manager, instead of a criminologist. If a dog or a child has a favorite toy or blanket, buy a spare! Things get taken away in life, but we can still keep our little ones happy.

That's exactly what we did Sid. We had a backup chew toy for Fluffy stored away in the house. Although it took a little time for Fluffy to get to get use to the new toy. You see it just didn't have that same smell as the old one did, and Fluffy was aware that it wasn't the same toy. LOL

Good job! I learned this trick from a mom who had 3 identical baby blankets from day one. One for the baby, one in the laundry, one clean and ready the moment the baby made a mess on the first one. Now, make sure you buy another backup, and let Fluffy chew on it some now, so she won't know the difference, if the thief should come again!

That's a good idea Sid, but it probably works a little bit differently in life for dirty outside chew toys. But it's worth a try for the next theft. LOL

Enjoyed this hub very much. Great writing. I know when my Jack Russell, Cookie, thinks someone has gotten her favorite ball, the kind that squishes and a little air will come out, she won't rest until she finds it. Faith Reaper

This reminds me of the time I saw a dog steal my dog's favorite squeaky toy, which he had recklessly left on the front lawn. The dog had an accomplice in the form of a small boy of about 8. I knew where they lived, so went and very politely asked his mother for my dog's toy back. She scowled at me, fetched the toy, completely broken, thrust it at me without a word and slammed the door in my face. Ah, the finesse of modern manners :)
