The City: Crime

Over at VFTP, Tam's got the latest on the Central Canal shootings (the alleged shooter, now in custody, is both underage and suspected to be a gang member, who'd've thought it?).

That leaves the me with lesser lights of crime, desperate, hardened dacoits like The Vacuum Bandit.

You, in back -- stop snickering. We're talking about a guy who calmly enters big box stores, loads up a high-end vac, and wheels it directly out to his car, cool as ice. He's hit store after store and supposedly sold the ill-gotten suckers on an auction site -- and no one knows where his nefarious plans might've led from there.

But you can relax for now: he was arrested yesterday. Rejoice! The city's vacuums are safe.

I'm always amazed at the things people will do to avoid honest work.

The Vacuum Bandit; sounds like the title of a missing chapter of Venus Equilateral.
