Anything's possible

Here's an amusing press release from the Portland police:

On Wednesday November 7, 2012, at 3:17 a.m., Portland Police officers assigned to North Precinct responded to the report of a burglar alarm at Tran Pharmacy, located at 7816 Northeast Sandy Boulevard.

Officers arrived and discovered one of the front windows smashed out, large enough for a person to enter. Officers checked the inside of the building but did not locate anyone inside.

Officers noted that several things had been rummaged through but nothing appeared to be stolen. The victim responded and confirmed that nothing was missing.

At 3:43 a.m., officers responded to another burglar alarm at Paulson's Pharmacy, located at 4246 Northeast Sandy Boulevard. Officers arrived at the location and saw that a large window next to the front door was shattered. Officers checked the inside of the pharmacy but did not locate anyone inside.

The victim responded and was able to determine that an undisclosed amount of prescription medication was stolen.

At this point, investigators do not know if these two incidents are related.

Jeez, d'ya think?

I don't know . . . . how long would it take to go those 36 blocks by cargo bike?

A pharmacist I know in NE who used to work inside a medical clinic was broken into once. The cops took an hour to get there. Their car was one block away when the alarm went off and the system automatically reported a break in. We never did find out why they took so long. A cop on a cargo bike would have caught them red-handed.

Peter Faulk as Columbo would say, ".... ONE MORE THING Mr. Paulson. Mr. Tran is your competitor 30 blocks away reported a similar break in at HIS pharmacy. Why do you suppose THAT burglar didn't steal any drugs from Tran's, but was able to steal yours. Any idea why that might be?" Oh... and ONE MORE THING...

Allan L--it wouldn't be a cargo bike. It would be some beat-up old thing, probably stolen, with no lights, being ridden the wrong way down the street, weaving through traffic. And the rider would be wearing dark clothes and no helmet.

With earbuds in. Dark-colored earbuds.
