Arkansas Crime Wave

Thanks to Jeff Meyerson for the link.

Stolen soda machine's tracks lead back to owner - NewsFlash - "HUGHES, Ark. (AP) — Police didn't have to look too hard to figure out the source of a soda vending machine found in a front yard — they just followed the tracks.

Deputies from the St. Francis County sheriff's office spotted a Pepsi machine on Thursday in the yard of a home in Hughes. A set of dolly tracks in front of the machine led back to a liquor store less than a mile away that had reported it missing."

This reminds me of the strange news story a couple of years back (I think from Germany) of the guy who robbed a place and the police followed his tracks in the snow back to his home. At that time it seemed like Germany, Florida and Pennsylvania dominated the strange news beat.

Florida still does, I think. Or maybe it's just the gator beat.
