SCHLEPTO THE KLEPTO ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


The Notorious Neighborhood Newspaper Thief showed his true colors today at 7th and Montana ... and they're black and white and read all over. One would think after being caught on camera numerous times stealing newspapers from Our Favorite Starbucks -- after a group of "Local Vigilantes" even went so far as to circulate a Wanted Poster offering a reward for his capture -- that the Thief would see the error of his ways. But, no. He's simply become more sneaky. This morning he went to great lengths to avoid detection. "You just missed it," said Bob, "Your friend the Newspaper Thief poked his head around the corner, took one look at you, and headed the other way. He's sneaking-in the side-entrance now." Naturally, I ran around to the "other" side of Starbucks and cut him off at the pass faster than you can say Kleptomaniac ...!

Totally busted! So did he still manage to make off with the newspaper, or were you able to thwart his crime? I can't believe he's still trying to perpetrate his evil deeds!

Hugs, Beth

I'm surprised the manager at that Starbucks doesn't have a local cop at the very least talk to him. (Hugs)Indigo

at least he is keeping up with current events!

How about you try shooting him with a squirt gun? Just say "Stop Thief!" That should bring some attention to the situation.

They wouldn't kick you out for that, would they?

Super Marty to the rescue! All papers should feel very safe now! LOL

A wanted poster in Starbucks makes me think more of: HAVE YOU SEEN THIS LATTE?
