The Blotter 

LAST MINUTE COSTUME: A vendor at a military collectible convention reported the theft of a WWII purple heart, valued at $4,000. Police were called to the convention three more times by other vendors reporting their military regalia had been stolen. Two official Nazi party caps and a shirt tab of a Nazi Corporal of the 9th division National Socialist Flying Club were among the stolen goods. Police had no suspects but kept their eyes open for a Nazi and a GI on Halloween.

LIZZIE GRUBMAN WANNABE: A man was kicked out of a nightclub for excessive intoxication and disruptive behavior. Angered by his expulsion, the drunk got in his car and attempted to run over some employees in the parking lot. When the employees proved too elusive, the drunk rammed his vehicle into one of the walls of the club, causing $16,000 in structural damage and a gas leak. The man's infractions included driving with a revoked license, damage to property, assault with a deadly weapon, and most likely, a lifetime ban from the nightclub.

IT'S NOT QUALITY, IT'S QUANTITY: A robber broke into a dollar store and took $4,000 worth of merchandise. According to a local mathematician, the vandal stole approximately 4,000 items.

MATHAHOLIC: Someone broke into a middle school and stole a math projector.

FIREBALLER: A man awoke in his bed at 2:30am to the smell of a fire. He stepped outside his house and found an object smoldering in his bushes. Someone had ignited a baseball and thrown it at the man's house.

NO CLASS: While checking out of a hotel, a couple claimed to be relocating as part of a Hurricane Katrina disaster-relief program and were therefore exempt from paying. The hotel manager informed the guests that the police were being called to settle the matter. The couple then decided to pay the bill and leave before the officer arrived. A call to the hotel guests' employer confirmed that they were big, fat, heartless liars.

STICKY FINGERS:: A man called police to report someone had put glue on his garage door, which caused the paint to peel off.

Blotter items are chosen from the files of the Charlotte Police Department.
