Some of these should be officially in the funnies. "Suspicious person/circumstances, Trabuco Circle/Marguerite Parkway: A man was seen running in front of cars and doing cartwheels in the middle of the street." The suspicious part is what? That he was secretly auditioning for the circus? "A young person banged and screamed at the front door of a home, then left in a compact car." How much more MPG does the car yield if one does that? Can it be any home? "A 23-year-old man stole an 18-pack of beer." How did they find out his precise age? Also, what brand of beer?

Well, it was an 18-pack, so that narrows it down. I wonder about the exact age too, Shri. Maybe he showed ID first?

Wait a second, Kevin--was that your neighbor?
