I am a dispatcher. My daughter was in University at the time of this story, and she had come home for a weekend break. on Sunday I drove her to the train
station to return to the University. I was called out to work, just
before I left with her, and not wanting her to miss her train, I grabbed the car keys and left in a hurry. After dropping off my daughter, I realized that I had forgotten my lunch and had to return home before going to work. I found out I had taken the spare car keys, no house keys. I tried the kitchen window at the rear of my home,
decided I would try and crawl in. I opened the window successfully, got in, just had enough time to grab my lunch,
lock the house properly and take the right keys.
I only lived about a 3 minute drive from the Police Office. My first call
was from a male, he reported a person crawling in the rear of
Mr Power's home, gave my address and described me to a T! Yes,
the caller said, he was walking along the rear of my home just a few minutes before and had witnessed a break and enter in progress. Red-faced with embarassment and not wanting to
tell him it I that lived there, and I was the one who crawled in
through the window, I thanked him for his information, and said that I wished we had more people that would assist our Police, and assured him
it was being looked after. I am sure you know the rest, boy did
our Police have fun with that one, or should I say with me .
Just somthing I wanted to pass along, as I will never forget it.
