Blotter: The week in crime 

Highlights from the City of Charleston police reports

Drug Hiding Spot O' The Week: A cooler of fresh-catch shrimp

An unknown thief stole Adderall from a woman's purse at a downtown bar. We bet it was one of those people in the pharmaceutical commercials who rattle off side-effects like they're a doctor.

After a female officer made the observation that being drunk on the sidewalk wasn't a good idea, a man suspected of public intoxication said, "That girl is smarter than she should be."

A drug store manager reported that four T-shirts had been stolen by an unidentified man. Has anyone questioned Pony Boy?

Time to give up the chase: According to police, a drunken suspect "attempted to stumble away."

A woman had three checks stolen and at least one was used at a pizza place. She suspects her son's girlfriend. Then again, what mother isn't suspicious of her son's girlfriend?

Spontaneous Comment O' the Week: "I'm not drunk, I'm high!"

A shoplifting suspect must have provided the best mug shot ever. According to police, she allegedly put a black hat in her bag and then looked at herself in a mirror before trying to walk out of the store.

Items stolen this week: Five bikes, two iPods, three GPS units, and a professional make-up kit. Fierce!

The Blotter is taken from City of Charleston police department reports. We've added a cartoon and a little commentary. We've added a little humor, too. No one has been found guilty. This is not a court of law.
