Bizarre crime from Charlotte police files (Dec. 3) 

Giving thanks

Thor's angel: A woman was arrested trying to carry out a heavy load at a Home Depot in east Charlotte last week. Employees said the woman walked into the hardware store, placed five hammers into her purse and attempted to leave with them. She was stopped before being able to leave, and detained until police arrived without anybody getting hammered.

Being sneaky: Employees at a sneaker shop near South End were forced to admit some embarrassing info last week after someone broke into the business. A group of suspects reportedly smashed the glass on the front door and entered the building, taking about $500 worth of Nike shoes. If the police report is to be believed, however, all of the shoes were counterfeit anyway.

Chex yourself: A 16-year-old boy was robbed at gunpoint in South End, but not for his sneakers, wallet or necklace. The boy told police that multiple suspects approached him, pointed a handgun at him, took a bag of Chex Mix out of his hand and fired a shot into the air before making off with the snack.

It's a deal: A man coming down from his high had a hard admittance to make to his employer when he sobered up last week. The employer filed a report with police stating that the man traded his $9,000 work van for narcotics.

Paranoid for steroids: A 29-year-old man filed a police report last week after believing someone may have been trying to poison him. He said he went to take a health supplement he takes daily for cardiovascular support when he noticed a lone brown capsule in the bottle. He said the capsules are not usually brown, and that he doesn't believe the brown capsule was there the previous day, but he isn't sure.

Giving thanks: A 49-year-old woman in north Charlotte filed a police report after someone delivered her some food in a lazy way. She said she was driving through her neighborhood at about 8 a.m. and saw a man whom she had taken out a restraining order against walking down the street with a slice of pie in his hand. When she returned home about 10 minutes later, she saw that the piece of pie had been thrown at her other car's front windshield.

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