Fortune cookies help cops nab suspect

I just read this Associated Press (AP) story “Fortune cookies help cops nab suspect” which I found pretty amusing:

fortune_cookie“TULSA, Okla.—Two fortune cookies helped Tulsa police make an arrest after a pair of break-ins Chinese restaurants. Terrence Middleton, 30, was booked Friday on charges of second-degree burglary and attempted second-degree burglary after police responded to a burglar alarm to find him with more than $20 in coins and the cookies in his pockets, Officer Leland Ashley said… Ashley said police were able to link Middleton to the Asian Express that was robbed because he had possession of the same type of fortune cookies that were at the restaurant.”

Personally, I don’t like fortune cookies – I only like the fortunes. I thought it was pretty funny that a burglar would steal fortune cookies while emptying out the cash register at a Chinese restaurant.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
