A roundup of unusual and noteworthy items from area police departments:
She took it, and shot up, too
BROOKVILLE (Oct. 14): A shoplifting complaint at a local store led to a drug arrest when the woman who said, “I’ll be honest with you, I took the stuff,” was found to have some unknown liquid and other paraphernalia in her van.
Again, she was honest. “I used the syringe just today to shoot heroin,” she said.
The $13.75 worth of stuff (two pairs of socks, three air fresheners and dog treats) was returned to the store. The woman was taken to jail. — Marc Katz,
