This holiday season, I’d like to express my appreciation of Donna Fielder and her knack for highlighting the worst of Denton through our always entertaining police blotter .
Blotter: Police investigate report of purloined Thanksgiving meal
By Donna Fielder / Staff Writer
The man said he was cooking a turkey, a ham, a cherry pie and a pumpkin pie in the apartment in the 3400 block of Joyce Lane. When he left the residence, on the table were a slow cooker full of cider and another filled with dressing, he told officers.
There was no sign of forced entry, but when he returned from being away for a while, the food was gone. He showed the officer discarded meat packaging.
He valued one of the slow cookers at $400 and the other at $200, according to the report.
900 block of Emery Street — Someone smashed a car windshield with a frozen turkey, according to a report at about 3 a.m. Thursday.
A neighbor said he was up working on his computer when he heard a popping sound and a male voice yelling “woo hoo!”
The neighbor went outside to investigate and saw the 15-pound turkey lying in the street. The windshield of the car parked in the street was smashed.
The owner of the vehicle said he did not know who might have wanted to smash his windshield.
