CSI Hertfordshire

December 1, 2010

There is a very funny story in the Evening Standard today about how two police officers arrived at a house in Baldock, Hertforshire where a drug dealer had been held hostage by gang members. By the time the police arrived, the kidnappers, who had ordered pizza, were gone but the delivery boy was on their doorstep with the pizzas. The quick-thinking delivery boy offered the pizzas to the officers at a reduced rate. And they proceeded to eat the evidence while the kidnappers were at large and place the boxes in the boot of their car, not realising the boxes contained the phone number of the kidnappers on the delivery slip. Nice to know these guys are keeping our streets safe! You can read about the whole funny episode here.

      At least the moral of the story is the bad guys went hungry and the police were well fed!
