Never said being a policeman was easy. This weeks local reports include the following sure-to-be-on "Cops" items:

  • A dead squirrel was found in the roadway near the intersection of Knaus Road and Timberline Drive.
  • A resident received a suspicious piece of mail.
  • A McVey/South Shore area resident says someone cut a coupon out of the coupons she received in the mail.
  • A resident of the Springbrook Park neighborhood called police to report that her ex-husband was at her house, intoxicated, and planning to eat a live lobster as part of some kind of satanic ritual. Police were unable to contact the woman, but met with the ex-husband in question. No word on the lobster.
