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.

In an apparent copycat theft, a right front rim and tire were stolen on Oct. 17, this time from a car parked in front of a woman's downtown home. The car had been left resting on several stacked wooden blocks. While the cop was on the scene, another car was found missing its right rear rim and tire; the car had also been left resting on a wooden box. Now that's a front left, front right, and right rear stolen ... what could be next?

Blotter Cop-Misspelled Word O'The Week: "Disturbence."

On Oct. 14, cops arrested a man for shoplifting at a King Street grocery store. The man had been caught trying to steal one can of Hot Shot roach spray. As the cops placed him under arrest, the man told them that he was trying to get money for crack cocaine and showed them his pipe. The cops dutifully added possession of drug paraphernalia to the charges.

On Oct. 15, a woman was arrested on the corner of St. Philip and Radcliffe streets for disorderly conduct. The cop was on a routine patrol when he saw the woman "standing in front of a white male, gyrating on his person." When the cop asked her what she was doing she politely screamed "Fuck you!" "Man whores!" and "Fuck the police." She was placed in the back of cop car where she began to kick the ceiling with her high heels, causing extensive damage. Damn rap music.

Blotter Shoplifted Item o'The Week: Mrs. Lee Country Pudding. On Oct. 15, employees at a downtown grocery store caught a man stuffing the product in his pants. Mmmm ... pudding pants.
