At Least You’re Not In The News Podcast: Madison & La Crosse In The House

MADISON, Wis. – A 55-year-old man is in custody after Madison Police say he tried stealing $500 worth of candy.
Officers were called out to the 3300 block of Milwaukee Street around 11:15 p.m.  Neighbors in that area near the intersection of Milwaukee Street and Stoughton Road called in with reports of a man breaking into a car.Police found a man matching the suspect description about a mile away, carrying a garbage can.  Inside the trash can, officers found $500 worth of candy that had been taken from the car, which is owned by a candy distributor. The man was arrested and taken to the Dane County Jail.

-A 36-year-old woman and a 45-year-old man in Seattle got drunk on Sunday night, and at around 2:15 A.M. they went to grab some late-night pizza.
 But the woman got into a BIG argument with the staff at the pizza place because she got pizza with Sriracha sauce on top . . . and she didn’t feel like they’d given her enough.
 Anyway, she and her friend left the shop . . . and that’s when, for some reason, a 29-year-old guy outside threw a GARBAGE CAN at them.  It hit the woman’s boyfriend in the leg, and the cops came to sort out what was going on.
 But the woman kept trying to get them to shift their focus to something she felt was far more important:  Holding the pizza place accountable for shorting her on Sriracha.
 Believe it or not, the cops did NOT choose to investigate the Sriracha incident . . . instead, they wound up arresting the guy who threw the garbage can for assault.
-A 44-year-old guy named Randy Bolstad stole a laptop from a business in La Crosse, Wisconsin on Saturday.  But somehow, in the process, he left two things behind:  Some cash . . . and the paperwork for his PROBATION.
 So when he got outside and found his stuff was locked inside the building . . . he called 911 for help.
 He told the dispatcher he’d left some stuff in the business and he really needed to get inside.
 The cops came, but by that point Randy was gone.  On Monday, the cops got ANOTHER 911 call from that business about the missing laptop, and they quickly figured out what really happened.
 They tracked Randy down and arrested him for burglary . . . and, obviously, for violating his probation.
