True Detective Stories

Work yesterday was fabulous! For the first hour it was just me and one other detective, the previous shift left us with a robbery, an aggravated assault, and a missing person with dementia. So, you know, the usual.

While entering these jobs into the database, I came across a theft from auto report. I usually skim those, since the story is always the same. “Dude-Bro states someone entered his vehicle and took his protein powder, yadda, yadda, yadda.” This one, however, was… different.

While this report did feature a Dude-Bro, the items missing from his vehicle included a high-end camera, two designer watches, a pair of diamond earrings, and – wait for it – $15,000 in cash.

I mean, I don’t want to call the guy a liar, but I can’t think of a way to finish that sentence.

Oh, this is unrelated, but I have a Kyle update. Yesterday as I was driving to work, Kyle sent me this text message:

“For lunch they had… chicken fried steak. UD wins!”

When I asked him if it was good, he replied, “Surprisingly, it was very good.” The kid is practically a Texan already.
