It started simply enough with a call from an aggrieved citizen.
“I was robbed!”
After a telephone interview with the alleged victim to gather necessary information to begin an investigation, the detectives met to brainstorm.
A rookie deputy knocked on the conference room door to report that the stolen property they were discussing was already in evidence.
Going by their case notes, they confirmed identifying features. It was only a matter of returning valuables to their owner.
Detectives notified the victim his property had been found. All they needed was for him to come in to claim his pot plants.
