Scary find for B.C. of­fi­cer

Lethbridge Herald - - ODDS & ENDS -

A rou­tine pa­trol of an al­ley in down­town Lad­ner, B.C., gave po­lice pause late Mon­day evening.

“Po­lice of­fi­cers don’t scare eas­ily. But imag­ine you are pa­trolling down a dark al­ley and your flash­light hits upon this,” reads a cap­tion to a photo the Delta Po­lice tweeted.

The im­age shows sev­eral man­nequin heads peep­ing out of a dump­ster that’s slightly ajar. One, with scrag­gly dark hair, hangs from the lid, be­side a metal chain.

The po­lice of­fi­cer who spot­ted the heads prob­a­bly “had a sec­ond of ‘Oh my, what have I got here?’” said po­lice spokes­woman Cris Leykauf.

The of­fi­cer quickly in­ves­ti­gated and found a num­ber of man­nequin heads in the dump­ster, she said, along with even more that filled a garbage bag.

“It seems a lit­tle grisly sound­ing when you say it like that, doesn't it?” she asked with a laugh.

There are cloth­ing stores and hair sa­lons nearby, she noted, so po­lice aren’t sure where the heads came from.

Leykauf said she’s not sure ex­actly how the vet­eran of­fi­cer re­sponded when he found the heads.
