Good News

Early yesterday we got a call from our bank. They had the Seattle police on the line. Turns out, the cops had just picked up some punk who happened to be carrying The Spouse's ATM & American Express cards. Of course, I'd cancelled those cards within minutes of him having been mugged so they were useless. One would wonder why someone would carry useless cards for 7 months but then, one would also assume that "brain trust" is not a phrase that one would assign to a punk mugger anyway.

Point is, the little bastid, or one of his damn little bastid friends, got caught and holding evidence of an earlier crime is going to make the weight of his consequences even heavier. And that's a good thing.

Maybe this will help The Spouse put the experience to rest.

Snaps to the SPD!

Oh Yay!

I was hopeful this would get resolved.

The good thing is that it should help the spouse to come to terms with it. I was mugged many years ago and I know it took a long while to get over it.

Yes and with Anne on this - more about the raccoons please.

A little justice is a grand thing to see.

People being held accountable and stupid crooks getting themselves caught. These are a few of my favorite things. That's why I watch Judge Judy every day.

Good news, indeed. I'm guessing that happy endings to stories like this one are rare.

More importantly, did they happen to find the briefcase?

While slightly delayed, it sounds a bit like something that happened to a former roommate of mine: he was mugged by some guy who jumped out of a passing car to do it, and when the driver got out to pull his friend back into the car, said driver happened to drop his own wallet at the scene of the crime...

And yes, here's hoping this lays to rest any lingering discomfort The Spouse may still have.
