Peek a Boo bur­gler - Inves­ti­ga­tors said offi­cers responded to the Pal­isades Pres­by­ter­ian Church on Birch­wood Streeta round 4 a.m. on a report of sus­pi­cious activ­ity and arrested a man wear­ing a white T-shirt, a tutu and pur­ple tights…with his gen­i­tals exposed.  Police said a pickup truck parked nearby was loaded with elec­tron­ics, musi­cal instru­ments and other items from the church.

She acts so cold - 27-year-old Amanda Whit­taker says she has fallen head over heels for the the Statue of Lib­erty, which she calls “Libby.”  Amanda, who pre­vi­ously had a “rela­tion­ship” with a drum set, said, “She is my long-distance lover and I am blown away by how stun­ning she is. “She’s even thought about mar­ry­ing the statue — but decided against it “because so many oth­ers love her too. “Instead, she has made a shrine to the Statue of Lib­erty in her home, fea­tur­ing a 6-foot replica, hun­dreds of smaller mod­els and hugeU.S.flags.  Whit­taker suf­fers from con­di­tion called objec­tum sex­u­al­ity, in which peo­ple fall in love with things rather than humans.

Wrong num­ber — A 911 dis­patcher over­heard a com­mo­tion on the other end of a call and kept the con­nec­tion until the loca­tion could be traced and cops could be sent to the scene.  When the offi­cers were nearby, a man was over­heard say­ing, ‘Oh, there goes the cops.”  It was cer­tainly means for con­cern con­sid­er­ing Jesus Suarez and Jesus San­tos were putting the fin­ish­ing touches on a crack cocaine sale when one of their cell phones acci­den­tally dialed the emer­gency number.
