Thief Strips on Borough Hall Steps

The audacity of a local thief left locals in shock today. Thank God I had my camera.

On my usual errands, I had to stop by the Borough Hall.  As I approached, I admired the festive fall decorations on the front steps. Someone did a professional-looking  job of decorating the entry with hay bales, pumpkins and cornstalks in preparation for the upcoming town fall festival.

Our town hall, a stunning brick building, is the primary entrance to the police department and other municipal offices. After  my visit, I headed, in no particular hurry out the main entrance.  As I opened the door, I caught a glimpse of movement in my peripheral vision.  Sheer instinct made me pull my camera from my pocket and turn it on.

As I continued my exit, I saw the happy thief stripping away, no more than 3 feet from me.  I turned my camera on him and so intent was he on his quest, that he eyed me for a split second and continued frolicking as if there weren’t an entire police force less than 50 feet from him.

Shocking he was.
