Good Samaritan

So on Wednesday morning we woke up to find a beat up Honda on our street in front of one of the houses for sale. It stayed there all day and night and was still there when I got home from school day. So, I decided to call the Fayetteville Police to report an abandon car. It has no plates and nothing on the inside. I was think it would be several days before it would go away.
About 45 minutes after I got off the phone with the police they were here. They looked around the car and then they got in the car and started looking around.

Then they opened the trunk and started to look around in there.

Then the police officer and his friend dressed in street clothes just sat down on the hood of the police car. UMMMM... I wondered what they were doing. Well, if you know me, I went to ask.
I walked up to them and introduced myself and told them the story. They asked when it appear and if I had heard anything. I knew it was there Wednesday morning and never heard a thing. Then he said well, aren't you the good samaritan. I thought he was being sarcastic. Then he told me it was STOLEN CAR! At that point I got really excited! I had solve a crime!
Then after talking to them for a while I realized that it wasn't so cool, that I had car thieves on my street! CREEPY!
Then they came and towed it away!

That is all the excitement we have going on here!

That is crazy! At least the thieves were just dumping it on your street and not hanging out that a bright side? Haha. Good job!
