Strange Criminals

I can’t possibly summarize this any better than the Journal Star already has:

It’s not clear why, but a 30-year-old allegedly was seen circling a fountain near the Lincoln Children’s Zoo in his pickup Tuesday night.

It was 10:20 p.m. when a zoo employee spotted him driving around Teacher’s Fountain, 27th and Capitol Parkway, and called police with a description of the driver, his pickup and plate number, Capt. Jim Thoms said.

He said police went to the registered owner’s address at 2742 Cable Ave. and found the blue 2000 Chevy S-10 pickup with mud and grass on it.

When they talked with the owner, Joshua Arney, he denied any involvement. But the zoo employee identified him as the driver, Thoms said.

Police cited Arney on suspicion of vandalism — and reckless driving.

Damage to the shrubs and landscaping was estimated at $100.

Bizarro.
