Local Police Reports

I compulsively check the "Police Report" sections of the Glendale News-Press and the Burbank News-Leader because I like to know what's going on in the neighborhood, and also because oftentimes the blurbs written about each crime offer bizarre details that are stranger than fiction. I'll post a few below from this week's papers, and will add more interesting crime blurbs as I find them.
1200 block of Riverside Drive: A Burbank man reported Saturday that someone broke into his residence and stole a telephone worth $180, a pair of scissors and 60 rolls of toilet paper.
60 rolls of toilet paper???
200 block of Spencer Street: A Glendale woman reported Monday that she heard scratching noises coming outside her residence, which could have been a burglary attempt.
Or possibly...a cat.
900 block of Hollywood Way: A man reportedly stole a bottle of liquor and four bottles of shampoo from a Rite Aid Tuesday. No arrests were made.
You'd think he'd shoplift four bottles of liquor and ONE bottle of shampoo...

90% of the Glendale items are usually graffiti, catalytic converter theft (recent trend), drunk in public, or side mirrors stolen from a Mercedes. A few months ago there was a rash of BMW emblem theft.
