This doesn't top the police blotter item about a man stopping traffic because he had to fart, but it's up there. From Westlake, via the Westshore Sun:

Four Taco Bell customers took their appreciation for nacho art a bit too far on July 8 when workers there said they tried to steal a painting from the dining room wall. A manager recovered the art, valued at $157, before it was hoisted into a getaway car. The manager noticed the driver of the car, an 18-year-old Bay Village man, was a former employee of the restaurant.

$157? That seems a bit of a stretch. $0.89, maybe, if you got extra packets of sauce.
