Bizarre crime from Charlotte police files (Dec. 11) 

Smells like trouble

Keep the Change: A vigilant shopper at an east Charlotte Food Lion spotted a rolled-up dollar bill on the floor near one of the registers. Said shopper picked up the bill and unrolled it, only to discover marijuana wrapped up inside of it. He turned the bill in to customer service, who in turn called the police.

You Should Know Better: Two men entered an east Charlotte 7-Eleven and stole $28 worth of Milwaukee's Best beer. Seriously? All theft aside, sometimes it's about quality.

An Expensive Habit: A 53-year-old female reported that someone broke into her unlocked car while parked at a University-area Walmart and stole her pack of Pyramid 100s cigarettes out of it. Have you ever heard of Pyramid 100s?

Smells Like A Fight: A 26-year-old male and 17-year-old female were each charged with simple assault after the man sprayed air freshener in the woman's eyes. He also claimed that she sprayed air freshener in his eyes. Both wanted to press charges, while no injuries were reported and medical attention was refused.

Glad They Found It: Someone broke into a northeast Charlotte home and proceeded to steal a plethora of electronics and jewelry — two flatscreen TVs, a Nook, two laptops, a Samsung Galaxy 3 cellphone, a tablet, a PS3, a Sony Sound System, an iPad, a portable DVD player, Beats headphones, an iPod Touch, a man's Bulova watch, a gold chain, a wedding ring and ... a grill cover. Thankfully, the grill cover was one of two items recovered.

Taking The Redeye: A suspect was arrested at an Uptown CVS after shoplifting a $5 box of store-brand eye drops. The offender placed the item in his pocket and attempted to leave the store before being obtained.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department. All suspects are innocent until proven guilty.
