Police blotter reports.
March 29: Theft: A caller reported that a library book had been taken from a person in the 6000 block of Riverwalk Lane.
Was someone mugged while walking down the street with their library book? Was the book stolen out of a house? Car-jacking?
Or is this just a new excuse for losing a library book? "No, Ms. Librarian, ma'am, I didn't lose the book. Yes, I'm positive that it isn't under my bed or behind the couch cushions. Someone stole it from me!"
All the possibilities. They'd make great writing prompts, don't you think?
