Cruised past there last night at about ten something and there were three cop cars and half a dozen po po out front. Wondered if there had been a drive off without paying….

Just a hunch, but maybe police should drop by the Melba 7-Eleven next Sunday night at 10:30pm?

What are the odds this crim will stay on trend?

I wonder if they thought of that, but got caught up dealing with something more important, like someone whingeing about how loud the neighbours toilet flush or something?
