THE HAUNTED FLOATER: A woman volunteers to dress up in costume and frighten a crowd of followers as she guides them on a Ghost Tour downtown last Sunday, October 23. There’s something about frightening an innocent crowd with haunting tales that makes the volunteer’s work so worthy. On this particular Sunday evening, however, the ghost story was on her when she couldn’t find her car. The vehicle was later found behind Bricks locked up and without the key after mysteriously moving without any eyewitnesses. Whether the perpetrator was a haunted spirit or someone who couldn’t resist an unlocked car with the keys inside, we may never know.
CHICKEN AMMUNITION: ‘Tis the season for hooligan folly — one house and car successfully egged by mischief makers on Wilmington Street last weekend.
LEWD LARRY: Lewd Larry, we all know him, a relative of Chuggin’ Suzy. He was spotted last Saturday, October 22, around 1:25 a.m. relieving himself outside of Panini’s on Bay Street in eyeshot of a police officer. That Larry, he takes his liberties where he can.
FRIGHTENED FISHERS: Saturday October 22, a man and woman spending an afternoon fishing on the old train trestle behind Beaufort Plaza were robbed at gunpoint by four young males. Two of the criminals pulled out pistols and not only stole all the cash and jewelry the fishing pair had — an estimated value of $545 — but threw both of their cell phones into the water.
