The Columbo of Atherton

Police Blotter, page 2. Atherton, Thursday, 500 block of Fletcher Drive, 10:33 p.m.: A resident reported seeing a suspicious looking person driving a dark-colored Toyota pickup truck going through recycling bins. The resident told police that the suspicious person stole recyclables every other Thursday night around 11 p.m. The resident followed the suspicious person to southbound Highway 280 to obtain the truck's license plate. The truck's identifying information was given to police.

An Atherton resident begrudges someone less fortunate the opportunity to earn a couple of bucks. Recycling programs are mandated because they are thought of as a public good, not because they make money for the city. The thief was doing the city a favor. Next Thursday a police escort would be in order.

Those wacky Athertonians. The reporter who writes the police blotter must be very smart and good looking. If only I knew who he was!
