Wackadoo mash notes
I've mentioned before that one of my jobs is reviewing the random crazy letters that arrive at the police department. Well, in addition to that we sometimes end up with crazy notes and letters that we recover as evidence during other investigations. I got one of those today. I think I might find enough of these to put one out there every month or two for your reading amusement.
In this case, a 20-something woman living in a condo not far from our station reported that she found this note on her car. She knew who left the note because of the phone number that was attached. The suspect is a neighbor of hers, with whom she's had a few brief conversations. She was concerned because the guy who left the note called her at work, and she had no idea how he found out where she worked or got the number. He used the f-word on the phone quite a bit, and it disturbed her. She made the report so that there would be a record of his creepy freakery, but did not want the police to contact him regarding his behavior. Here is the note:
Here's the thing. The guy who left that note is a 30-something man who lives with his parents in their condo. She described him as "immature" and said he frequently looks disheveled, as if he has a drinking problem. He has a DUI arrest on his rap sheet, but nothing else. You should see his picture.
It's too bad our victim doesn't want us to talk to this guy, because this is one of the funniest damn letters I've seen in a long time. I told MizBubs that, from this point on, I want to be referred to as her "crusty admirer."
