SUSPECTS CALL COPS
Fredericksburg.com: " A 911 call that was apparently made accidentally led to the arrests of three Spotsylvania County teenagers accused of damaging at least $50,000 worth of school property early yesterday. Sheriff's Lt. Col. Michael Timm said deputies went to the Spotsylvania Career and Technical Center at 2:43 a.m. in response to a 911 hang-up from a cellphone. Police were able to trace the call to a cell tower near the vocational center on Smith Station Road next to Courtland High School." 

LIVE LOBSTER FOUND IN PURSE

The Capital: "A woman was arrested after she was found with a restaurant's live 3-pound lobster in her purse early Saturday morning, city police said. Police officers were called to Middleton Tavern on Market Space at 12:33 a.m. Saturday for a report of a theft and an assault. A customer had tipped the bouncer that three people leaving the restaurant had stolen a live lobster from a tank." 

SHOWERING BANDIT MAKES A CLEAN GETAWAY, AGAIN
Insidenova.com:  "Police say a Thursday morning burglary at a Manassas law firm is likely related to a recent rash of break-ins in Old Town. Somebody busted open a window at the Daugherty Law Firm at 9315 Center St., in Manassas sometime between 5 p.m. on Wednesday and 8 a.m. on Thursday, according to Mike Daugherty, a lawyer at the firm. The thief took a small amount of money from a desk drawer, but employees also found other drawers opened in adjacent offices, according to senior partner and attorney Don Daugherty. In addition, the office computers that are always left on were turned off when he arrived at the office.  “We have a live monitoring system, so maybe [the burglar] saw himself on camera and then thought turning the computers off would make it go away,” Don Daugherty said."
