The Criminal Element

When I got home last night there were a lot of police cars on my street.

I found out that some car-thievin’ douchebag was on the lam in our neighborhood last night. He ran through the Westerly neighbor’s yard, inciting a scream from the wife. Then he tried to open the front door to the upstairs suite of the house in which we live. Failing that he saw the Easterly neighbor and said “dude can you hide me?” to which the neighbor declined.

He was hiding in the bushes in the next house down when the cops came flooding into the street and yelled at all the gawpers to get back in their homes.

I heard it through the grapevine.
