Wed June 1, 10:04 a.m. 2022 PDT A gun case was located in the 4000 block of S 322nd St.
(Well, I guess points that it was at least in a case at one point? I mean, putting it in a case is pretty useless if the case can just take a walk – but that’s another conversation for another time.)

(Guess he wasn’t ready to take the leap into using technology. Probably shouldn’t, oh I don’t know, cause property damage and steal, but what do I know?)

Thu June 2, 12:02 a.m. 2022 PDT Two adult males were trespassed from Hills of Comics 125 E Main St.
(PSA: Comic book ‘nerds’ and gamer ‘geeks’ are…different, now. You’ll be hard-pressed to find someone asking “Oh no, did I do that?” that’s for sure.)
