Burglary in Florida
BURGLARY IN FLORIDA (You just can't make this stuff up!!)
When southern Florida resident Nathan Radlich's house was burglarized
recently, thieves ignored his wide screen plasma TV, his VCR, and even
left his Rolex watch. What they did take, however, was a "generic white
cardboard box filled with a grayish-white powder." (That's the way the police
report described it.)
A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said, that "it looked similar
to high grade cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time."
Later, Nathan stood in front of numerous TV cameras and pleaded with the
burglars: "Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She
died three years ago."
The next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a local drug dealer known
as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The cardboard box was
there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. Taped to the box was this
note which said:
"Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted
your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day."
And you thought California was the land of fruits and nuts!
