What Were the Thieves Thinking?

Lumpkin County, just like its big cousins to the South - Fulton, Dekalb and Gwinnett counties - has its share or thefts and burglaries....only the items being pilfered in this area of North Georgia aren't always the large ticket items as in the big Atlanta metro counties.

When you look at this list of recently stolen items from Lumpkin residents or stores, all you can say is, "What were those thieves thinking?" On the 'stolen' list included:

  • Tomatoes from someone's tomato plant 
  • 20 signs for a local business 
  • Knobs from a kitchen stove 
  • Half a carton of cigarettes
  • A woman's purse
  • A diamond bracelet
  • A pair of shoes and bottles of shampoo and conditioner, and
  • A toothbrush, male enhancement pills and KY Jelly from Walmart
We had our own little crime wave in our neighborhood last week, too. No thefts; just five bashed in mailboxes (which, dear mailbox batterers, is a Federal offense.) Unfortunately, ours was one of those five. But at least no one broke in to our house and stole the knobs off our kitchen stove or took our shampoo!
