Baltimore Crime Beat: Santa pick-pocketed in Fells Point

December 23, 2010|By Justin Fenton | Baltimore Sun reporter

"I've always wanted to hug Santa," the 50-year-old woman said as she hugged a man dressed in a Santa costume on Dec. 19 in Fells Point.

She held herself close, rubbed against him - and picked his pocket.

As we continue to lament the retirement of Sun reporter Dick Irwin and the demise of the police blotter, we are also thankful that the Baltimore Guide continues to sift through those logs of lesser crimes. The above incident is from their blotter, which doesn't go into details about the crimes, sometimes with comic effect.

To wit:

"Boston Street, 4200 block, December 15, 1 p.m. Someone entered a business and stole a vibrating table."

I must know more.
