Back in May, Kristen Tribe, an assistant editor at the Wise County Messenger, pointed out that the Lufkin Daily News’ Police Blotter, which is regularly highlighted here at the TM Daily Post, isn’t the only absurd chronicler of crime in the state. We immediately took a look at December through April of her paper’s blotter, and agreed. The crime of this rural area near the Metroplex was quirky. But was it just a fluke? You be the judge. On Monday, we brought you items from the blotter from May through July. Read this selection of happenings from August through October:
“A woman was upset because a tow truck was parked at her neighbor’s house.”
“A woman reported that her neighbors are playing sexually-oriented games.”
“A looted automatic-teller machine was discovered beneath a bridge just north of Decatur.
“A homeowner in Alvord reported they found a knife in their yard that an unknown suspect had used to cut branches off plants in the garden.”
