New Trend in Thieving: Cheese Sandwiches


1 comment
On November 28, C-Notes reported a rash of cold cut robberies stretching from the West Side to Akron. According to a story in The East Liverpool Review, this recent trend in thieving has stretched as far south as Wellsville, a small Appalaichan village next door to Salineville, where To Rob a Predator took place. It appears that, aside from robbing pedophiles, Southeast Ohioans are also fans of stealing sandwiches. On December 16, a burglar broke into the home of David Palmer. Aside from lifting a watch and 35mm camera, the robber also stopped to make himself a cheese sandwich. -- Denise Grollmus
