Thieving duo bolts with volts

A headline like that is deserving of a bit of publicity. Just reading it made me smile.

Must be a slow day at the Star Telegram.

HURST -- The Energizer Bunny is probably living in fear these days.

A couple walked into Roy's Hobby Shop on July 19 and stole two batteries from toy helicopter boxes.

The theft happened about 5:30 p.m. at the shop in the 1300 block of Norwood Drive.

An employee told police that the charged-up couple fled after an employee discovered that the batteries, worth $26.99, were missing.
This incident even warrants a graphic.

Perhaps the couple had a temporary cash-flow problem -- they drove away in a Cadillac Escalade.
"One Adam 12, One Adam 12... Be on the lookout..."
