Cops at Work.

At approximately 11:30 this morning, I could have sworn I was watching an episode of "Cops" in the parking lot at my office. Oh the excitement!!

I took a peak over my cubicle to look out the window only to see an officer throw this guy onto his cruiser. This was literally right outside my office! Naturally, I decide to get up and go outside for a closer look. Pretty much everyone else had the same idea, so this criminal had quite the audience as he was being tossed into the cruiser. He was arrested for stealing a vehicle/possession of a stolen vehicle/fleeing from police. The stolen van that this guy was driving ended up in the ditch at the front of our building. After the crash, two men fled the vehicle - one went one way, and the other went the opposite way. The police followed the one down our driveway and got him right where I spotted them.

THEN! THEN! As we are watching the officer throw the first guy into his cruiser, we all spot the other criminal way out back behind our building. Other officers who were there immediately got into their K9 SUV and tore down the driveway to the back. The two officers jump out of the van, and let out one of the dogs. We hear lots of barking and then see them take the guy down.

To make matters even more exciting/interesting, we then shortly after spot the police leaving with garbage bags full of pot. Apparently there are pot plants all over in the fields behind our building. Go figures! We're not sure if the pot is related to the guys they took down, but it was interesting to see how many police cruisers just happened to be around.

This has to be the excitement of the year for this place!

Just think - if you had known the pot was growing there before EVERYDAY could have been that exciting.

Nothing that exciting happens around here. I guess I'm happy about that. Rather read then experience.
Love the pic of you and Chelsea. Need to start getting my five year old mare over some jumps again. She has just been making too good of a dressage horse.
