Crime Watch: Walking a $500 Tab and Stealing a Car With a Tow Truck
At 2851 Walnut Hill Lane sits a one-time mom-and-pop diner where, when I was a kid, my father and I used to have breakfast every single Saturday morning. But, several years ago, the new owners bricked up its windows (to class up the joint, naturally) and turned the eatery into a drinkery called the White House, if I read my Korean signs correctly. I mention it this morning because, whilst perusing Avi Adelman's Daily Crime Report for my neighborhood, I spotted this item of interest: Around 11 p.m. Tuesday night, a man or woman -- it doesn't say which -- drank up a $490 tab at the establishment, then managed to walk out of and drive away from the club without paying. While it is possible one drink costs $490 at the White House, I do not think it is a strip club.
Another crime item of note from Tuesday: At around 3 p.m. on Flowerdale Lane, one block off of Royal Lane just west of Webb Chapel Road, a man reported that his 2007 Dodge Charger was stolen from his driveway. No one broke into the car, however: According to the police report, it was snatched "by a wrecker that pulled it from location by suspects." I do not think it was stolen by this guy, but I could be wrong. --Robert Wilonsky
