Bizarre crime from Charlotte police files (Dec. 18) 

Plenty of car problems

Blame the boobs: A 31-year-old male contacted law enforcement after losing his cell phone and headphones at a south Charlotte strip club. We're guessing he also "lost" a number of $1 bills ... and probably a bit of his dignity.

Better Than a Banana in the Tailpipe: $1,500 in damage was reported after someone poured sugar into the fuel tank of a 31-year-old east Charlotte man's 2011 Chevy Impala.

Praying to the Porcelain God: Someone broke into an east Charlotte home through a bedroom window and stole an iPhone 4, a laptop, home theater system equipment, a flat screen TV and $4,500 in cash. The 31-year-old victim also reported that a porcelain god display was also damaged.

Just the Hat?: No TV? No phone? No computer? No jewelry? Nope. When someone broke into a westside home by kicking in the front door, the only thing of value that was reported stolen was a $10 black cap with rhinestones on it.

How's the Cat Doing?: Theft from a motor vehicle was reported at a south Charlotte home. The 43-year-old female owner of the vehicle reported that three packs of Xtra gum were stolen along with four Xanax pills — which were prescribed for her cat.

Pop a Wheelie: A 35-year-old woman reported that someone removed a tire from her car and stole it while the vehicle was parked at a south Charlotte department store ... in broad daylight. Someone must have been working on their pit stop times.

Wrong Car?: A 42-year-old male reported that an unknown suspect slashed all four tires of his 2005 Nissan Quest, broke the rear license plate, covered the vehicle and scratches and etched the word "Bitch" on the hood while the car was parked in a residential parking lot.

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

  • On Saturday, Oct. 21, hundreds gathered at Camp North End on Statesville Avenue for Charlotte's first black alternative music festival. We captured some of the bands in action on stage, but mostly we surveyed the grounds as fans, families, vendors and more lounged around the sprawling, colorful Camp North End site. It was a great day of music, food, fun, and sweet, autumn sunshine. (Photos by Mark Kemp)
